Welcome to the Pathology Uncertainty website.
This site is written by laboratory scientists in the field of pathology with the intention of demystifying the process of Measurement Uncertainty determination. Haematology is the main area of expertise for the authors of this site, however, it is appreciated that other disciplines may use this resource; therefore, as wide a representation of pathology disciplines as possible are represented here. The site will be updated regularly to reflect this aim.
We provide guides and worked examples from real data to show the simplest, and most statistically valid, means by which to assess the contribution that MU makes to our final reported results.
Follow us on Twitter and receive updates when content is updated. Updates will be in the format of blog posts. You can sign up to receive email updates in the sidebar to the right.
Using the site
The site is designed to be followed from start to finish to reflect the process of MU determination but if there are specific aspects that you would like information on they can be accessed using the navigation menu above.
