The net flux ratio is then calculated (flux BA/AB) and if Greater than 2 (and if it can be reduced in the presence of chemical inhibitors) then this is generally regarded as positive for active efflux of the test compound.

The net flux is obtained by subtracting a drainage term from this quantity.
