The following database tables have been arranged in three categories: Measurands, Clinical Applications and Laboratory Applications.
Lists all measurands that have been assessed for that species.
Focuses on clinically related aspects of biological variation (reference change values).
Focuses on laboratory related aspects of biological variation (quality standards).
Reference number relates to the citation list.
CVI - intraindividual variation.
CVG- between individual variation.
CVA - analyser variation (reported in the study, shown in red if > 0.5 x CVI). This can be determined by replicate analyses or from quality control studies (QCM)
II - Index of Individuality. A high level indicates subject-based reference intervals (RCV) are more appropriate, a low level indicates population-based reference intervals are appropriate, intermediate levels indicate both reference change values and reference intervals should be assessed.
RCV - reference change value calculated to 95% and 99%.
These terms are explained on the ‘About BV’ page.
