BS ISO 17822:2020 pdf download.In vitro diagnostic test systems — Nucleic acid amplification-based examination procedures for detection and identification of microbial pathogens
1 Scope
This document describes the particular clinical laboratory practice requirements to ensure the quality of detection, identification and quantification of microbial pathogens using nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT). It is intended for use by laboratories that develop, and/or implement and use, or perform NAAT for medical, research or health‑related purposes. This document does not apply to the development of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices by manufacturers. However, it does include verification and validation of such devices and/or the corresponding processes when implemented and used by the laboratories.

3.1 accuracy
closeness of agreement between a test result or measurement result and the true value
Note 1 to entry: In practice, the accepted reference value is substituted for the true value.
Note 2 to entry: The term “accuracy”, when applied to a set of test or measurement results, involves a combination of random components and a common systematic error or bias component.
Note 3 to entry: Accuracy refers to a combination of trueness and precision.

3.7 calibration
operation that, under specified conditions, in a first step, established a relation between the quantity values with measurement uncertainties provided by measurement standards and corresponding indications with associated measurement uncertainties and, in second step, uses this information to establish a relation for obtaining a measurement result from an indication
Note 1 to entry: according to US Code of Federal Regulations, calibration is a process of testing and adjusting an instrument or test system to establish a correlation between the measurement response and the concentration or amount of the substance that is being measured by the test procedure (modified from 42CFR 493.1218) [20] .
