Standard Specimen

Standard specimens are calibration specimens containing predetermined quantities of the analyte. The response of each standard, along with the standard’s predetermined concentration, is used to construct a standard dilution curve. From this standard dilution curve, concentrations can be determined for control and unknown specimen, dilutions and sample replicates in quantitation data reduction. Parallelism and relative potency determinations can be made for control and unknown dilution curves when compared to standard dilution curves.
