Validation of the Rockall risk scoring system in upper gastrointestinal bleeding. (1/3865)

BACKGROUND: Several scoring systems have been developed to predict the risk of rebleeding or death in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB). These risk scoring systems have not been validated in a new patient population outside the clinical context of the original study. AIMS: To assess internal and external validity of a simple risk scoring system recently developed by Rockall and coworkers. METHODS: Calibration and discrimination were assessed as measures of validity of the scoring system. Internal validity was assessed using an independent, but similar patient sample studied by Rockall and coworkers, after developing the scoring system (Rockall's validation sample). External validity was assessed using patients admitted to several hospitals in Amsterdam (Vreeburg's validation sample). Calibration was evaluated by a chi2 goodness of fit test, and discrimination was evaluated by calculating the area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. RESULTS: Calibration indicated a poor fit in both validation samples for the prediction of rebleeding (p<0.0001, Vreeburg; p=0.007, Rockall), but a better fit for the prediction of mortality in both validation samples (p=0.2, Vreeburg; p=0.3, Rockall). The areas under the ROC curves were rather low in both validation samples for the prediction of rebleeding (0.61, Vreeburg; 0.70, Rockall), but higher for the prediction of mortality (0.73, Vreeburg; 0.81, Rockall). CONCLUSIONS: The risk scoring system developed by Rockall and coworkers is a clinically useful scoring system for stratifying patients with acute UGIB into high and low risk categories for mortality. For the prediction of rebleeding, however, the performance of this scoring system was unsatisfactory.  (+info)

Performance and specificity of monoclonal immunoassays for cyclosporine monitoring: how specific is specific? (2/3865)

BACKGROUND: Immunoassays designed for the selective measurement of cyclosporin A (CsA) inadvertently show cross-reactivity for CsA metabolites. The extent and clinical significance of the resulting overestimation is controversial. A comprehensive assessment of old and new methods in clinical specimens is needed. METHODS: In a comprehensive evaluation, CsA was analyzed in 145 samples with the new CEDIA assay and compared with the Emit assay with the old and new pretreatments, the TDx monoclonal and polyclonal assays, the AxSYM, and HPLC. All samples were from patients with liver and/or kidney transplants. RESULTS: The CEDIA offered the easiest handling, followed by the AxSYM, which showed the longest calibration stability. The TDx monoclonal assay provided the lowest detection limit and the lowest CVs. The mean differences compared with HPLC were as follows: Emit, 9-12%; CEDIA, 18%; AxSYM, 29%; and TDx monoclonal, 57%. The CycloTrac RIA paralleled the Emit results. In contrast to the mean differences, substantial (>200%) and variable overestimations of the CsA concentration were observed in individual patient samples. Metabolic ratios, estimates of the overall concentrations of several cross-reacting metabolites (nonspecific TDx polyclonal/specific reference method), correlated with the apparent biases of the various monoclonal assays. Metabolic ratios varied up to 10-fold, which translated into biases for individual samples between -7% and +174%. The higher the cross-reactivity of an assay was, the higher was the range of biases observed. The interindividual differences markedly exceeded other factors of influence (organ transplanted, hepatic function). CONCLUSION: Because assay bias cannot be predicted in individual samples, substantially erratic CsA dosing can result. The specificity of CsA assays for parent CsA remains a major concern.  (+info)

TE671 cell-based ELISA for anti-acetylcholine receptor antibody determination in myasthenia gravis. (3/3865)

BACKGROUND: Acetylcholine receptor (AChR) from human muscles is the antigen used currently in radioimmunoprecipitation assays (RIPAs) for the determination of anti-AChR antibodies in the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis (MG). Our aim was to develop and validate an ELISA using TE671 cells as the source of AChR. METHODS: After TE671 cell homogenization, the crude AChR extract was used for plate coating. Anti-AChR antibodies were determined in 207 MG patients and in 77 controls. RESULTS: The mean intra- and interassay CVs (for two samples with different anti-AChR antibody concentrations) were 9.7% and 15.7%, respectively. Test sensitivity and specificity, for generalized MG, were 79.5% (95% confidence interval, 72.8-85.0%) and 96.1% (89.0-99.1%). The detection limit was 2 nmol/L. Anti-AChR antibody concentrations from 53 MG patients, as tested with our ELISA, showed good agreement with an RIPA with a mean difference (SD) of 1.0 (5.6) nmol/L. CONCLUSION: Our ELISA is a simple screening test for the diagnosis of MG and enables rapid and inexpensive patient follow-up.  (+info)

LocaLisa: new technique for real-time 3-dimensional localization of regular intracardiac electrodes. (4/3865)

BACKGROUND: Estimation of the 3-dimensional (3D) position of ablation electrodes from fluoroscopic images is inadequate if a systematic lesion pattern is required in the treatment of complex arrhythmogenic substrates. METHODS AND RESULTS: We developed a new technique for online 3D localization of intracardiac electrodes. Regular catheter electrodes are used as sensors for a high-frequency transthoracic electrical field, which is applied via standard skin electrodes. We investigated localization accuracy within the right atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle by comparing measured and true interelectrode distances of a decapolar catheter. Long-term stability was analyzed by localization of the most proximal His bundle before and after slow pathway ablation. Electrogram recordings were unaffected by the applied electrical field. Localization data from 3 catheter positions, widely distributed within the right atrium, right ventricle, or left ventricle, were analyzed in 10 patients per group. The relationship between measured and true electrode positions was highly linear, with an average correlation coefficient of 0.996, 0.997, and 0.999 for the right atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle, respectively. Localization accuracy was better than 2 mm, with an additional scaling error of 8% to 14%. After 2 hours, localization of the proximal His bundle was reproducible within 1.4+/-1.1 mm. CONCLUSIONS: This new technique enables accurate and reproducible real-time localization of electrode positions in cardiac mapping and ablation procedures. Its application does not distort the quality of electrograms and can be applied to any electrode catheter.  (+info)

European interlaboratory comparison of breath 13CO2 analysis. (5/3865)

The BIOMED I programme Stable Isotopes in Gastroenterology and Nutrition (SIGN) has focused upon evaluation and standardisation of stable isotope breath tests using 13C labelled substrates. The programme dealt with comparison of 13C substrates, test meals, test conditions, analysis techniques, and calculation procedures. Analytical techniques applied for 13CO2 analysis were evaluated by taking an inventory of instrumentation, calibration protocols, and analysis procedures. Two ring tests were initiated measuring 13C abundances of carbonate materials. Evaluating the data it was found that seven different models of isotope ratio mass spectrometers (IRMS) were used by the participants applying both the dual inlet system and the continuous flow configuration. Eight different brands of certified 13C reference materials were used with a 13C abundance varying from delta 13CPDB -37.2 to +2.0/1000. CO2 was liberated from certified material by three techniques and different working standards were used varying from -47.4 to +0.4/1000 in their delta 13CPDB value. The standard deviations (SDs) found for all measurements by all participants were 0.25/1000 and 0.50/1000 for two carbonates used in the ring tests. The individual variation for the single participants varied from 0.02 /1000 (dual inlet system) to 0.14/1000 (continuous flow system). The measurement of the difference between two carbonates showed a SD of 0.33/1000 calculated for all participants. Internal precision of IRMS as indicated by the specifications of the different instrument suppliers is < 0.3/1000 for continuous flow systems. In this respect it can be concluded that all participants are working well within the instrument specifications even including sample preparation. Increased overall interlaboratory variation is therefore likely to be due to non-instrumental conditions. It is possible that consistent differences in sample handling leading to isotope fractionation are the causes for interlaboratory variation. Breath analysis does not require sample preparation. As such, interlaboratory variation will be less than observed for the carbonate samples and within the range indicated as internal precision for continuous flow instruments. From this it is concluded that pure analytical interlaboratory variation is acceptable despite the many differences in instrumentation and analytical protocols. Coordinated metabolic studies appear possible, in which different European laboratories perform 13CO2 analysis. Evaluation of compatibility of the analytical systems remains advisable, however.  (+info)

The length and eruption rates of incisor teeth in rats after one or more of them had been unimpeded. (6/3865)

The eruption rate and length of all four incisor teeth in rats were measured under ether anaesthesia by recording the position of marks on their labial surfaces at 2-day intervals, using calibrated graticules in microscope eyepieces. The rats were divided into four groups and either a lower, an upper, both a lower and an upper, or no incisors were unimpeded. This paper describes the changes when the unimpeded incisors returned to the occlusion. Neither the unimpeded nor the impeded incisors simply returned to control values immediately the period of unimpeded eruption ended, but showed transient changes in their lengths and eruption rates. The results confirm that eruption rates are determined by the sum of the lengths of the lower and upper incisors, rather than by their own lengths, with longer teeth erupting more slowly. Specifically, restoring the bevel to the incisors did not slow their eruption below normal impeded rates. The slowing of the eruption of the longer of two adjacent incisors was related to the length differences of the incisors in the same jaw, not to the sum of the differences in both jaws. Contact with the contralateral incisor in the opposite jaw slowed the eruption of an incisor more than contact with the ipsilateral incisor.  (+info)

Fluorimetric determination of aluminum traces in hemodialysis solutions using Mordant Red 19. (7/3865)

A sensitive and accurate method for the spectrofluorimetric determination of trace levels of aluminum in hemodialysis solutions using Mordant Red 19 as the complexation reagent has been developed. The optimal experimental conditions for the concentration of fluorimetric reagent, pH, temperature, and the specific type of matrix are reported. The emission of the fluorescent metal chelate was measured at 555 nm, excitation at 478 nm. Linearity between emission intensity and aluminum concentration was found in the 2-20 ppb range in standard aluminum solutions. Limit of detection was 0.4 ppb. The aluminum amounts in some commercial hemodialysis solutions were determined by means of the extrapolation method. The proposed method proved to be suitable in terms of sensitivity and accuracy for the determination of aluminum in dialysis fluids.  (+info)

The method is selective and suffers only from interference by Zr(IV), Ti(IV), Th(IV), W(VI), PO4(3-), and F-.  (+info)

Accelerometers are used in a variety of applications ranging from navigation systems to stand-alone tests. In each application, the accuracy of the accelerometer is crucial. There are various calibration techniques that range in precision, yet each apparatus devised to calibrate the accelerometer is quite complex. A calibration method of less complexity is desired to calibrate stand-alone accelerometers that require moderate accuracy. One stand-alone accelerometer, the X16-1D, was used to investigate calibration techniques. Six calibration techniques were investigated to determine an efficient method to calibrate a stand-alone accelerometer. Each method provided a different acceleration component that was modeled by theoretical equations. For all six methods, test variables were established to determine the accelerometers ability to track acceleration. Each test was compared to the theoretical acceleration model to determine the effectiveness of the calibration technique. The overall errors of each
A novel method is introduced for developing calibration models for the spectroscopic measurement of chemical concentrations in an aqueous environment. To demonstrate this matrix-enhanced calibration procedure, we developed calibration models to quantitate glucose and glutamine concentrations in an insect cell culture medium that is a complex mixture of more than 20 components, with three components that manifest significant concentration changes. Accurate calibration models were generated for glucose and glutamine by using a calibration data set composed of 60 samples containing the analytes dissolved in an aqueous buffer along with as few as two samples of the analytes dissolved in culture medium. Standard errors of prediction were 1.0 mM for glucose and 0.35 mM for glutamine. The matrix-enhanced method was also applied to culture medium samples collected during the course of a second bioreactor run. Addition of three culture medium samples to a buffer calibration reduced glucose prediction errors from

An advanced wavelength calibration process with higher wavelength accuracy is developed based on the conventional calibration method of micro-spectrometers with multichannel detectors. The deficiencies of the conventional method in acquiring sufficient well-spaced and adequately accurate wavelength-pixel data for calibration are analyzed. And three steps are added to the conventional method before the final pixel-wavelength fit is carried out. First, segmented data collection is carried out to ensure sufficient well-spaced lines for calibration. Second, sub-pixel analysis is executed to increase sampling rate. Third, peak fit is implemented to acquire more accurate central wavelength positions. The simulated experiment was based on a compact spectrometer with a crossed Czerny-Turner optical design. Mercury and Argon line spectra are used as wavelength standards. A linear image sensor with 1024 pixels each 25μm in width is used as the detector. In the new calibration process the whole spectral ...

Nowadays, a large number of chiral analyses are needed, simple and rapid methods for the determination of the enantiomeric composition in pharmaceutical products should be developed. The fluoxetine belongs to the most prescribed antidepressant chiral drugs and its enantiomers have a different duration of serotonin inhibition. This study presents cheap and fast alternative to traditional chiral techniques for the determination of the fluoxetine enantiomeric composition by the combination of UV/VIS spectrometry and multivariate calibration. The chiral recognition of the fluoxetine was based on the creating of the diastereomeric complexes with α- and β- cyclodextrin. Multivariate calibration methods, including principal component regression (PCR) and partial least square method (PLS), were used for spectral data evaluation. Small differences in results between eachcyclodextrin and both calibration models were obtained by multivariate calibration. PLS model for determination of the enantiomeric ...
The IIP2 requirement in fully integrated direct-conversion receivers using FDD duplexing is prohibitively high and demands the use of an external filter in order to attenuate the leakage from the transmitter. This paper presents a digital calibration technique for passive CMOS down-converters that allows a direct conversion receiver achieve the requirements without external filtering. A Least-Mean-Square optimization algorithm is used in order to reduce the low-frequency second-order intermodulation product. The algorithm controls the digital calibration structures at the biasing of the passive mixer and adapts them until the second order intermodulation drops below the noise level. The method is tested by calibrating a 1.2-V 65nm CMOS passive mixer targeting UMTS/LTE applications at several corner conditions including worst case mismatches in the switching pairs.. ...

The need for custom footwear among the consumers is growing every day. Serious research is being undertaken with regards to the fit and comfort of the footwear. The integration of scanning systems in the footwear and orthotic industries have played a significant role in generating 3D digital representation of the foot for automated measurements from which a custom footwear or an orthosis is manufactured. The cost of such systems is considerably high for many manufacturers due to their expensive components, complex processing algorithms and difficult calibration techniques. This thesis presents a fast and robust calibration technique for a low-cost 3D laser scanner. The calibration technique is based on determining the mathematical relationship that relates the image coordinates to the real world coordinates. The relationship is determined by mapping the known real world coordinates of a reference object to its corresponding image coordinates by multivariate polynomial regression. With the ...

Many anisotropic phenomenological yield functions have been proposed in the literature in which their predictive capabilities strongly depend on the experimental calibration data as well as the calibration procedure to identify the anisotropy parameters. In this paper, emphasis is placed upon the experimental and numerical calibration procedure of anisotropic yield functions in the region of shear loading (zero hydrostatic stress with equal and opposite in-plane principal strains and stresses). Conventional anisotropic calibration procedures are shown to introduce non-physical artefacts into constitutive models which manifest as a non-zero hydrostatic stress or through-thickness strains generated under in-plane shear stress that violate the definition of the shear loading condition. To overcome this issue, a new physically necessary constraint is applied on the plastic potential to enforce equal and opposite principal strains in the shear state and correct the shear region of anisotropic yield ...
A method and apparatus for measuring the concentration of an analyte present in a biological fluid is disclosed. The method includes the steps of applying NIR radiation to calibration samples to produce calibration data, analyzing the calibration data to identify and remove outliers, constructing a calibration model, collecting and analyzing unknown samples to identify and remove outliers, and predicting analyte concentration of non-outliers from the calibration model. Analysis of the calibration data includes data pretreatment, data decomposition to remove redundant data, and identification and removal of outliers using generalized distances. The calibration model may utilize principal component regression, partial least squares, multiple linear regression, or artificial neural networks, and reduction using principal component analysis or partial least squares scores. Unknown sample data is analyzed using data pretreatment followed by projection into the calibration model space, and identification and
Electronic balances are precision instruments and are very susceptible to changes in room temperature. Sensitivity must be calibrated whenever required since changes in room temperature influence weight measurement values, which are not supposed to change. This is why the balance captures changes in room temperature that affect sensitivity and automatically starts calibration using built-in weights. This ensures that sensitivity is constant at all times, allowing the operator to concentrate on measurement tasks without having to worry about sensitivity calibration.. The balance starts calibration using built-in weights at preset times of the day. If you set calibration times before important measurements (e.g. before starting work in the morning, or during the lunch or evening break), the balance will automatically start calibration when the preset time is reached. Consistent measurement is possible without worrying about sensitivity calibration.. The balance incorporates motor-driven ...
A visual sensor calibration method of calibrating of a visual sensor in a robot system. A pattern plate is provided on an arm of a robot, and the calibration pattern data (CPDr) of the pattern plate on robots base coordinates is sent from a robot controller to a visual sensor controller. The visual sensor controller picks up an image of the pattern plate by a camera to obtain calibration pattern data (CPDc). The calibration data (CD) is obtained from the calibration pattern data (CPDr) and the calibration pattern data (CPDc), to thereby calibrate the visual sensor.
The development of a viable self-calibration approach for use with non-metric cameras was investigated. Both computer generated and actual test camera data were generated to determine the effectiveness of the math model and computer program. A twenty-seven parameter bundle adjustment routine was proposed because of its versatility and compatible use in an existing aerotriangulation package. For the camera and test configuration considered, the focal length was recovered to within two percent, and the principal point location was recovered to wi thin O. 3 to twelve percent. When the computer generated data was used, the focal length and principal point offset were recovered to within 0.2 percent.. Modeling and software has been made available for a future comparative study between the self-calibration and Direct Linear Transformation adjustment parameters. The self-calibration modeling and former Direct Linear Transformation modeling software is a promising tool for mensuration tests and ...

An identification of the model parameters for a parallel cable-driven robot is performed by using both a calibration and a self-calibration approach. The manipulator studied is based on a parallel architecture having 8 cables to control the 6 degrees of freedom of its mobile platform so that the mobile platform is fully constrained by the cables. Under some hypotheses on cable properties, the interest of redundancy in actuation is exploited to self-calibrate by using proprioceptive sensors. This approach is compared to the difficulties to implement a calibration process. Additionally, advanced tools and algorithmic improvements are presented to perform the parameter identification. A complete experimentation validates the robot accuracy improvement after calibration or self-calibration. We show that the basic hypotheses on cable properties are verified. Moreover, the investment in terms of time and cost to obtain the external measurements for calibration process does not bring better results and does

The transfer of a multivariate calibration model for quantitative determination of diethylene glycol (DEG) contaminant in pharmaceutical-grade glycerin between five portable Raman spectrometers was accomplished using piecewise direct standardization (PDS). The calibration set was developed using a multi-range ternary mixture design with successively reduced impurity concentration ranges. It was found that optimal selection of calibration transfer standards using the Kennard-Stone algorithm also required application of the algorithm to multiple successively reduced impurity concentration ranges. Partial least squares (PLS) calibration models were developed using the calibration set measured independently on each of the five spectrometers. The performance of the models was evaluated based on the root mean square error of prediction (RMSEP), calculated using independent validation samples. An F-test showed that no statistical differences in the variances were observed between models developed on ...
Camera calibration plays a critical role in 3D computer vision tasks. The most commonly used calibration method utilizes a planar checkerboard and can be done nearly fully automatically. However, it requires the user to move either the camera or the checkerboard during the capture step. This manual operation is time consuming and makes the calibration results unstable. In order to solve the above problems caused by manual operation, this paper presents a full-automatic camera calibration method using a virtual pattern instead of a physical one. The virtual pattern is actively transformed and displayed on a screen so that the control points of the pattern can be uniformly observed in the camera view. The proposed method estimates the camera parameters from point correspondences between 2D image points and the virtual pattern. The camera and the screen are fixed during the whole process; therefore, the proposed method does not require any manual operations. Performance of the proposed method is evaluated

We propose a computational calibration method for optical tomography. The model of the calibration scheme is based on the rotation symmetry of source and detector positions in the measurement setup. The relative amplitude losses and phase shifts at the optic fibers are modeled by complex-valued coupling coefficients. The coupling coefficients can be estimated when optical tomography data from a homogeneous and isotropic object are given. Once these coupling coefficients have been estimated, any data measured with the same measurement setup can be corrected for the relative variation in the data due to source and detector losses. The final calibration of the data for the source and detector losses and the source calibration between the data and the forward model are obtained as part of the initial estimation for reconstruction. The calibration method was tested with simulations and measurements. The results show that the coupling coefficients of the sources and detectors can be estimated with ...

Camera calibration is one of the fundamental photogrammetric tasks. The standard procedure is to apply an iterative adjustment to measurements of known control points. The iterative adjustment needs initial values of internal and external parameters. In this paper we investigate a procedure where only one parameter - the focal length is given a specific initial value. The procedure is validated using the freely available Damped Bundle Adjustment Toolbox on five calibration data sets using varying narrow- and wide-angle lenses. The results show that the Gauss-Newton-Armijo and Levenberg-Marquardt-Powell bundle adjustment methods implemented in the toolbox converge even if the initial values of the focal length are between 1/2 and 32 times the true focal length, even if the parameters are highly correlated. Standard statistical analysis methods in the toolbox enable manual selection of the lens distortion parameters to estimate, something not available in other camera calibration toolboxes. A ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): In order to address the difficulty of arranging large calibration objects and the low mea-surement accuracy of small calibration objects in traffic accident scene photogrammetry, a photogrammetric method based on a composite of small calibration objects is proposed. Several small calibration objects are placed around the traffic accident scene, and the co-ordinate system of the composite calibration object is given based on one of them. By maintaining the relative position and coplanar relationship of the small calibration objects, the local coordinate system of each small calibration object is transformed into the coordi-nate system of the composite calibration object. The two-dimensional direct linear trans-formation method is improved based on minimizing the reprojection error of the calibration points of all objects. A rectified image is obtained using the nonlinear optimization method. The increased accuracy of traffic

In a computer tomography system, a flexible calibration phantom is utilized simultaneously with analysis of a patient to ensure accuracy of imagry and to facilitate interpretation of tomographs created. The flexible calibration phantom is preferably placed directly upon a patient between a radiation source and a radiation detector. It includes two solid and flexible samples of reference materials, each having a substantially uniform density, and a solid and flexible encasement surrounding the samples of reference material. The encasement has a substantially uniform density different than that of each of the samples of reference material, and the combination provides suitable reference points for proper analysis of tomographs obtained.
A system and method for radar detection and calibration. By measuring the true range of a calibration target on entry to the radars detection zone, the actual detection capability of the radar in current atmospheric conditions with the actual radar can be determined. The radar system is also adapted to determine a sensed position at a sensed time of a target in the radars detection zone. A calibration target, preferably an unmanned air vehicle (UAV), includes a position device for determining the actual position of the calibration target. A calibration device communicates with the radar system and the calibration target and receives the sensed and actual positions of the calibration target. The calibration device calculates the error between the sensed position and the actual position and adjusts the radar system to minimize the error. The target may include a signal augmentation device to augment the radar cross-section of the target to replicate the radar cross-sections of targets of various types.

The increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has led the scientific community to investigate the adverse effects on humanity and nature, including the greenhouse effect, which contributes to global warming and can lead to climate change, besides the risks associated with human health. Due to the importance of metrological issues in the current scenario, the Laboratory of Gas Analysis (Lanag) of the National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro) is developing the methodology of preparation of such primary standard gas mixtures through gravimetry. For the preparation of these standards, an analysis verification step is necessary, carried out by means of an analytical technique of comparison, at low levels of concentration, by cavity ringdown (CRDS) and by gas chromatography using a flame ionization detector coupled to a methaniser catalyst (GC-FIDmeth). This work presents the method validation of both methodologies developed to analyze a range of
EOS satellite instruments operating in the visible through the shortwave infrared wavelength regions (from 0.4 micrometer to 2.5 micrometer) are calibrated prior to flight for radiance response using integrating spheres at a number of instrument builder facilities. The traceability of the radiance produced by these spheres with respect to international standards is the responsibility of the instrument builder, and different calibration techniques are employed by those builders.

This paper describes the radiometric measurement comparisons, the use of stable transfer radiometers to perform the measurements, and the measurement ...
In analytical chemistry, a calibration curve is a general method for determining the concentration of a substance in an unknown sample by comparing the unknown to a set of standard samples of known concentration.[1] A calibration curve is one approach to the problem of instrument calibration; other approaches may mix the standard into the unknown, giving an internal standard. The calibration curve is a plot of how the instrumental response, the so-called analytical signal, changes with the concentration of the analyte (the substance to be measured). The operator prepares a series of standards across a range of concentrations near the expected concentration of analyte in the unknown. The concentrations of the standards must lie within the working range of the technique (instrumentation) they are using.[2] Analyzing each of these standards using the chosen technique will produce a series of measurements. For most analyses a plot of instrument response vs. concentration will show a linear ...

are the averages of the x and y measurements and S denotes summation over all n observations. When the points lie exactly on a straight line of positive slope R = +1; when the points lie exactly on a straight line of negative slope R = 1. Mathematically R lies between +1 and 1. Maybe this fact has given rise to the idea that R being near ± 1 indicates a linear relationship between the x and y variables. However values of R which can be considered large can come from markedly non-linear relationships.12,13 Although it has been discussed by many authors, in practice analysts misunderstand this concept. For analytical processes considering instrumental responses the calibration function is usually obtained by means of a calibration experiment; the observations usually represent the result of a physical measurement that must be converted into the analytical result.14 The model equation used is the straight line equation, Yi = b + aXi + ei (with i =1 to n), where Yi is the response variable, Xi the ...

Leaf water content is one of the most common physiological parameters limiting efficiency of photosynthesis and biomass productivity in plants including Miscanthus. Therefore, it is of great significance to determine or predict the water content quickly and nondestructively. In this study, we explored the relationship between leaf water content and diffuse reflectance spectra in Miscanthus. Three multivariate calibrations including partial least squares (PLS), least squares support vector machine regression (LSSVR), and radial basis function (RBF) neural network (NN) were developed for the models of leaf water content determination. The non-linear models including RBF_LSSVR and RBF_NN showed higher accuracy than the PLS and Lin_LSSVR models. Moreover, 75 sensitive wavelengths were identified to be closely associated with the leaf water content in Miscanthus. The RBF_LSSVR and RBF_NN models for predicting leaf water content, based on 75 characteristic wavelengths, obtained the high determination
KENNEWICK, Washington - April 19, 2017 - Bruker introduces a new calibration package for the EOS 500 handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectrometer (HH-LIBS). In response to customer input, the EOS 500 now has the option to include Iron, Nickel, Copper and Cobalt alloy calibrations, in addition to the existing light metal calibrations (e.g. Aluminum, Titanium and Magnesium base alloys). The EOS 500 is a metals analyzer which can provide rapid grade ID, as well as the chemistry, of the sample under test. This is an excellent choice for either scrap sorting or Positive Material Identification (PMI) measurements; especially for light metals where the measurement is approximately 10x faster than handheld XRF. The EOS 500s rugged design ensures that it will withstand field operation in nearly all environments, including humid and dusty conditions. In addition, the EOS 500 has a unique Air-Flow Optics Shield, which creates a continuous air shield in front of the optics in order to prevent dust ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Constraining permeabilities in a large-scale groundwater system through model calibration. AU - Ophori, D. U.. PY - 1999/10/12. Y1 - 1999/10/12. N2 - The range of field estimates of permeabilities in rocks of the Atikokan Research Area (ARA), Canada, has been reduced by calibrating a groundwater flow model of the ARA. The flow model was calibrated to the recharge component of the water balance and to measured freshwater heads in boreholes. A good match between field and simulated recharge, and between measured and simulated heads was obtained with two different permeability-depth distributions that differed by up to two orders of magnitude in places. Solute transport simulation of the distributions of total dissolved solids (TDS), chlorides (CI) and oxygen-18 (18O) in groundwater in the area was performed to further refine the permeability estimates. Vertical average linear groundwater velocities from the calibrated flow model were used in one-dimensional solute transport models ...

The rectangular calibration chart 1 comprises a plurality of parallel stripe-like color patches that are distributed into groups 11, ..., 14 of adjacent color patches 111, 112, 113, 114, ..., 118, each stripe-like color patch having a uniform calibration color. The calibration colors of the different stripe-like color patches are regularly distributed in a perceptually uniform visual color space. Thank to this regular distribution, the best compromise can be found between the lowest number of different color patches and the highest accuracy of the calibration of a given color device. Such a calibration chart is advantageously used to correction of non-uniformities of the color device.

A simple, accurate and precise UV-spectrophotometric method based inverse least-squares was developed for the simultaneous determination of atorvastatin and amlodipine in tablet formulation. The absorbance values of the two analytes were linear with the concentration at the wavelengths taken at 5 nm interval over the range of 230 -260 nm. The calibration equations were developed using the absorbance values of nine synthetic mixtures containing different concentrations of two analytes measured at 5 nm intervalsin the range of 230 -260 nm. The developed equations werethen validated by calculating the analytes recovery from the analysis of a set of another five synthetic mixtures, the mean% recoveries were 100.02% and 100.06% with the corresponding% RSD of ±0.36 and±0.51 for atorvastatin and amlodipine, respectively. The calibration equations obtained were then used to obtain the concentration of each analyte in commercial samples. The mean % recoveries were 100.43% and 100.28% with the corresponding%

Four size exclusion chromatography (SEC) calibration techniques were tested for use in the molecular weight characterisation of Streptococcal Hyaluronic Acid (HA). An exponential equation, evaluated using the Hamielec method, was superior to the customary peak position method. It provided the most accurate estimates of the weight average molecular weight, Mw. The calibration was valid for HA in the range 800 - 2500 kDa, and permitted the calculation of both polydispersity and molecular weight distributions for HA from Streptococcal fermentations. This exponential calibration approach should have application in the characterisation of other large biopolymers, particularly where pore size of available SEC media is limiting ...
Radar, Satellite tracking systems, Calibration, Self operation, Errors, Least squares method, Equations of motionThe report describes a radar calibration procedure currently in use at the Air Force Eastern Test Range AFETR - a procedure which uses only a single radars own passive tracking data of two successive passes of a satellite in conjunction with the theoretical equations of motion, known physical constants and associated computer program. No external tracking data or externally computed ephemeris is involved. Under routine conditions the zero-set biases and mislevel are estimated to an accuracy of 20 feet in range and 0.03 milliradians in angles. Under good conditions five other radar error model coefficients can be determined to comparable accuracy. The present maintained accuracy level of the AFETR radars is described. Author
We have shown that when it is used to monitor preterm infants receiving supplemental oxygen, the Masimo SET Radical pulse oximeter returns a reduced number of values of 87-90%. This is explained by the internal calibration algorithm, which changes in this region and adjusts SpO2 values above 87% upwards. A new software algorithm removed this artefact and returns a distribution of values that is similar to other current oximeters.. According to the product information, the oximeter is validated for accuracy in human blood studies on healthy adult volunteers in induced hypoxia studies in the range of 70-100% SpO2 against a laboratory CO-oximeter. This variation equals ±1 SD, which encompasses 68% of the population. The stated accuracy for neonates is ±3%, so by this standard at least 68% of the time the displayed SpO2 reading should be within ±3% of the simultaneous CO-oximeter value on an arterial blood sample. In this regard the original oximeter performs within all recommended accuracy ...
