The limit of detection, expressed as the concentration,
,
or the quantity,
,
is derived from the smallest
measure,
, that can be detected with reasonable certainty
for a given analytical procedure.
The value of
is given by the equation
where
is the mean of the blank measures,
is the standard deviation of the blank measures, and
is a numerical factor chosen according to the confidence level desired.
