CLSI Publishes New Edition of EP06—Evaluation of Linearity of Quantitative Measurement Procedures

12/15/2020

USAThe Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published the 2nd Edition of EP06—Evaluation of Linearity of Quantitative Measurement Procedures. EP06 is intended to provide both manufacturers and users of quantitative measurement procedures with an economical and user-friendly method of validating and verifying the linearity interval. This guideline also can be used to determine the extent to which a quantitative measurement procedure meets medical requirements or the manufacturer’s linearity interval claims.

EP06 discusses:

  • General considerations for measurement procedure linearity.
  • Validating and verifying the measurement procedure linearity interval.
  • Ten appendixes with examples of linearity studies and linearity panel preparation schemes.

Robert McEnroe, PhD, Chairholder of EP said, “EP06 provides guidance during validation and verification processes end to end. Enhancement of graphical representations and understandable worked examples allow the reader to better interpret robustness and potential limitations of an assay’s linearity."
