Uncertainty in measurement is internationally established in all fields of analytical chemistry, physics and other disciplines. Although measurement uncertainty is widely understood as a concept of measurement performance, reality requires a definition and consensus for the estimation and expression. We will explain the concept in metrological terms and its estimation in the laboratory, with particular emphasis on its use in the laboratory medicine and practical implications in medicine.

At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
  • Understand the concept of uncertainty
  • Estimate the uncertainty in measurements
  • Assess the importance of bias in measurements
