Analyzing many runs, we have found that patient sample batches may be unnecessarily rejected due purely to a bad calibration curve. Our strategy allows such batches to be processed and judged by acceptability of QC samples.

Calibration Curve. Calibration curves were prepared for five different ciprofloxacin hydrochloride concentrations in the range of 0.3-1.5%w/w.
In order to correlate the measurements of both rheometers and to obtain the calibration curve of the original Weissenberg rheogoniometer, based on squeeze film phenomenon, the data from Table 1 are numerically analized, supposing a linear regression equation, such as:
A calibration curve of cumulative UV exposure (y-axis) plotted against the measured change in optical absorbency (x-axis) for each dosimeter removed after set periods of time can then be used to determine the UV exposure of a dosimeter placed in an unknown UV environment.
Reusable print templates can be created using any data including the spectrum, calibration curve, quantitation results, and peak pick tables.
The STS contains a series of embedded thermocouples that are placed in precisely machined bores that establish a consistent and precise fit between the thermocouple and block in order to establish the calibration curve, according to the company.
3 represents the calibration curve of the probes before (a = -0.143 [+ or -] 0.561, b = 94.50 [+ or -] 2.865, and [R.sup.2]] = 0.98) and after the experiment (a = 0.132 [+ or -] 0.355, b = 91.30 [+ or -] 1.817, and [R.sup.2] = 0.98).
The assignments of MESF values to a set of labeled beads with different fluorophore densities allow for construction of a calibration curve for an instrument, such as a flow cytometer.
The calibration curve relating the absorbance spectrum at 2019 rim to the dissolved gas concentration is derived so as to infer dissolved [CO.sub.2] gas concentration on-line from measured NIR spectra.
