analytical sensitivity

analytical sensitivity

The concentration at which the mean response is statistically beyond the noise limits of the signal at zero concentration. Analytical sensitivity is the ability of a test to detect a target analyte (e.g., an antibody or antigen), which is usually expressed as the minimum detectable concentration of the analyte. In practice, the way in which analytic sensitivity is calculated varies according to the lab, with differing replicates and matrices.

But it is important to consider that PCR with MY09/11 primers has clearly a lower analytical sensitivity than the nested-PCR assay developed in our study and this is the probable reason for the low clinical specificity of the assay.
