Automated Assay SMV

January 2011

For automated assays: The "specimen minimum volume" is the amount required to perform the assay once, without giving a low-volume instrument alarm. This includes instrument pick-up volume (or analytic volume), instrument dead space, and container dead space. It does not include enough to perform repeat or additional testing.
