Measurement Uncertainty

Measurement uncertainty describes the scatter of measurement findings. These deviations occur in every stage of analysis. We conduct regular monitoring and take suitable action to recognize the extent of deviation and fluctuation in good time and to restrict these factors to within the prescribed tolerances. On request, we can communicate the individual measurement uncertainty when needed for a meaningful interpretation of our laboratory findings.
