Test results obtained from the EGFR wild-type samples at 5 ng/[micro]L and 1 ng/[micro]L had no mutations detected, suggesting high analytic specificity.
For forensic toxicology investigations, liquid chromatography coupled with highly targeted tandem MS (LCMS/MS) has become a method of interest, due to its excellent analytic specificity and ability to more easily manage biological sample matrices.
The analytic specificity was measured by running clinical specimens with potentially cross-reacting pathogens such as Penicillium, Sporothrix, Blastonzyces, Coccidioides, Histoplasma, and Candida as well as interferents such as rheumatoid factor, bilirubin, and lipoprotein.

Limited analytic specificity may be a result of misclassification of microorganism or nucleic acid contained in patient specimens or contaminated reagents.
Performance is described in terms of analytic sensitivity, analytic specificity, and overall analytic performance.
We showed 100% analytic specificity for 10 exons that were within reference range by Sanger sequencing (supplementary table 1).

However, I observed an error in the equations given for analytic sensitivity (p 30) and analytic specificity (p 31) in the article.
Given that this assay is a qualitative genotyping test intended, in this example, to be used specifically for carrier testing in adults of reproductive age in a particular clinical laboratory, relevant performance characteristics are accuracy, precision (reproducibility in a qualitative assay), analytic sensitivity (including limit of detection), and analytic specificity (including interfering substances).
These include accuracy, precision, reportable range, reference range (normal range), analytic sensitivity (LOD and limit of quantification [LOQ]), and analytic specificity (including interfering substances), as well as any other parameter that may be considered important.
