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

Through working on joint initiatives between Information Technology at NYU and the Libraries, the Librarian for RDM & R has been able to ingratiate these ideas of reproducibility into infrastructure planning and execution.
For reproducibility, the [zeta]w was around 1 mmHg (1.12 for IOP and 1.05 for bIOP) and the CV and CR were 7.6% and 3.1 for IOP and 7.1% and 2.9 for bIOP, respectively.
The reproducibility of the investigated parameters was classified according to the CoV value to excellent (CoV < 10%), very good (CoV [greater than or equal to] 10% and <15%), good (CoV [greater than or equal to] 15% and <20%), moderate (CoV [greater than or equal to] 20% and <25%), acceptable (CoV [greater than or equal to] 25% and <30%), and poor (CoV [greater than or equal to] 30%).
