Characteristics Impacts on uncertainty
Specificity/selectivity Effects related to the selectivity and specificity are overall measured when the evaluation of the uncertainty component associated with accuracy.
Precision These variances are among the most significant elements for the assessment of uncertainty.
Linearity, sensitivity 1st case: If the statistical test shows that the model is linear, no effect on the uncertainty.
2nd case: If the test shows that the model is not linear, then we may either reduce the measurement field or add a component (of non-linearity) in the evaluation of uncertainty. This component can be the maximum deviation to the model.
Limit of detection This feature does no effect on the uncertainty assessment; it serves to define the field of use of the method.
Robustness For a factor whose change scope is limited to ∓a, then the corresponding uncertainty is: , where c is the sensitivity coefficient of the response due to variations of the factor a.
Accuracy In chemical analysis, it is not applied corrections of accuracy. The goal during the development of the method is to check that there is no significant systematic error.
