A brief summary of the presentation of Elvar Theodorsson

From measurement to diagnosis: Uncertainty in laboratory medicine

Measuring the concentration of biomarkers in patient samples has the ultimate goal of providing information of value for diagnosing and monitoring. The uncertainty of the entire testing chain including the pre- and postanalytical phases are subject to various models for uncertainty calculations. The models that are understandable and practicable are most likely to be of lasting value.
