The absolute delay measurements obtained through simulation are 162 ps for TGFF and 196 ps for m[C.sup.2]MOSff1 which is in close agreement with the theoretical values 160.55 ps and 166.27 ps, respectively (typically within 15% error).
The sample was stored in the growth chamber for the quarantine period of QP1 to determine the absolute delayed mortalities.
