Calibration Curves - definition(s)

Calibration Curves - Curves that are generated by regression of the response of a detector against the known concentrations of analytes of interest. There are several types of calibration curves including:

   Continuing Calibration - A mid-range concentration standard that is analyzed on a daily basis and is compared with the continuing calibration of fidelity to the regression relationship established using the continuing calibration. The continuing calibration is often referred to as the Daily Calibration.
   Initial Calibration - A multi-concentration, generally multi-analyte series of known concentrations analyzed periodically to establish a regression relationship that established the lower and upper concentration limits.
