For each test method, results obtained for each type of sample (homozygous Hb A, heterozygous Hb C, and heterozygous Hb S) were compared with those obtained by the CLC 330 comparison method
. An overall test of coincidence of two least-squares linear regression lines was performed with SAS software (SAS Institute) to determine whether the presence of Hb C or S trait caused a statistically significant difference (P <0.01) in results relative to the comparison method
The comparison method
for the Glucometer Dex was a glucose dehydrogenase method using hemolyzed blood with reagents from Roche Diagnostics (Unimate 7) run on a Cobas Fara centrifugal analyzer (Roche Diagnostics).
This concordance was observed for all of the samples independent of the genotype (homozygous wild type, 1367 of 1367; heterozygous, 522 of 522; homozygous mutant, 211 of 211), the SNPs/mutations studied, and the comparison method
. In 7% of the samples the signal-to-noise ratio was low.
Our results indicate that the transcutaneous measurement of bilirubin is as accurate as bilirubin measured in plasma in a hospital laboratory when HPLC is used as the comparison method
. In conclusion, measurement of bilirubin by the BiliCheck device offers an accurate, rapid, and noninvasive means of assessing plasma bilirubin concentrations in neonates.
Studies have shown that harmonization of test results obtained by different [HbA.sub.1c] assays is feasible if all of the methods are calibrated with the same set of calibrators (9,10) and/or are adjusted to a Designated Comparison Method
In addition, to establish a diagnostic cutoff density on iodixanol that corresponded to a predominance of LDL-III (LDL subclass pattern B), we related LDL densities on iodixanol to the relative percentage abundance of sdLDL-III as measured by the comparison method
Additionally, 3D comparison method
assessed the distance measurement between the two point clouds in the masseter and it was determined that in the first month after the BTX-A application the masseter reduction was more than the second and third month controls.
We compare the accuracy of the link-to-cell-relative method, the direct comparison method
, and several hedonic specifications.
'Based on the comparison method
where transactions of properties nearby were compared, the reasonable market value for the house at that time was RM2.5 million,' he said.
She also rejected the sales comparison method
, due to a lack of sales.
We used the pair comparison method
for determination of weights.
