re·pro·duc·i·bil·i·ty

(rē'prō-dūs'i-bil'i-tē),
1. Ability to cause to exist again or to present again.
2. Ability to duplicate measurements over long periods of time by different laboratories.

reproducibility

Lab medicine  The degree of agreement among repeated measurements of a particular parameter, presented in terms of a standard deviation or coefficient of variation of the results in a set of measurements

reproducibility

(re-pro-doos-i-bil'i-te)
1. The quality of being provable again by repeated experimentation. See: research
2. A quality control test of radiographical output for multiple exposures using the same exposure factors. These factors must not vary by more than ±5%.
