allowable error

allowable error

the amount of error that can be tolerated without invalidating the medical usefulness of the analytic result. Allowable error has a 95% limit of analytic error; only 1 sample in 20 can have an error greater than this limit.

allowable error

Allowable analytical error Statistics A systemic error that is 'acceptable', both statistically and analytically–eg, 95% limit of error. See Standard deviation.
