If these 2 fragmention species are found to have an intensity ratio ("branching ratio") (41) of 1:1 in a patient's sample, it should be suspected that an isobaric compound that has undergone a mass transition of 582 m/z to 210 m/z is coeluting with the target analyte.
The branching ratio is determined by the interactions of two potential energy curves, each one leading to a different fragment state.

To determine the upper limit of linearity and limit of quantification for the assay, we used the following criteria: imprecision (CV) <20%; a branching ratio of the mass transitions within 30% of the value set by the calibration; and measured values within 30% of the expected values.
According to Table 1, the type I is interesting for low tan [beta] as all couplings in the neutral Higgs sector are proportional to cot [beta].This feature leads to cancellation of this factor as long as Higgs boson branching ratio of decay to leptons and quarks is concerned.
This project aims to observe physics beyond the SM in the Higgs boson sector through the search for Higgs boson, h pairs in the hh- b bbar channel, which benefits from the large h- b bbar branching ratio, efficient diphoton trigger, low backgrounds and excellent diphoton invariant mass resolution.
To determine the upper limit of linearity, we used the criteria of maintaining accuracy within 15%, imprecision (CV) <20%, and a branching ratio of the mass transitions within 30% of the value set by the calibration.
