Measurement repeatability profiles of eight frequently requested measurands in clinical chemistry determined by duplicate measurements of patient samples.

Scand J Clin Lab Invest 2020 May 23;80(3):202-209. Epub 2020 Jan 23.

Department of Clinical Chemistry and Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.
