The LR series also includes the LR-19 series for applications where a shorter length and smaller diameter body is required and the spring loaded LRS-18 for applications where the probe cannot be hard fixed to the measurand.
For example, what terms are better or "more correct": measurement error or error of measurement; "true value" of the measurand or simply "value" of the measurand, etc.
Measurement, rigorously defined as 'ascertaining the size, amount or degree of a measurand by instrumental comparison with a standard unit or by indirect calculation based upon theory', is what makes science and technology different to imagination.
The resulting variation in measurand between routine MPs leads to noncomparability of CDT values and reference intervals/decision limits and, consequently, to difficulty with both result interpretation and understanding of the diagnostic value of CDT.
The measurand is the ratio, R, of the detector response for a given radioactive source to that of a NIST radium-226 reference source.

Sometimes a combined result of measurement from multiple evaluations of the same measurand is needed.
As the true value of the measurand on orbit will always be an unknown quantity, the accuracy of the measurement can best be assessed by combining the results from different sensors and calculating the uncertainty of that Combined Reference Value (CRV) based on the individual sensor data (12).
Measurement accuracy is defined by the NCCLS as "the closeness of the agreement between the result of a measurement and a true value of the measurand.
