Symbol or Function Description Example
+ Addition CTL1+0.100
- Subtraction or negation BLK-0.010
/ Division CTL1/CTL2
* Multiplication STD1*0.10
() Represents inclusion (Note: Gen5 limits (CTL1/CTL2)*100
transformations to a maximum of 9 nested pairs

DS1 Represents Data Set # 1 DS1.X


DS2 Represents Data Set # 2 DS2.X
DS3 Represents Data Set # 3 DS3.X
DS4 Represents Data Set # 4 DS4.X
X or x The value of the current well X*100
Well Coordinates The value of a specific well A1/B1
Well Identifier The mean of the specified Well Identifier BLK, SPL1
Well Identifiers use the following syntax: SPL1:1
<prefix><index>:<Dilution Index>
It is important to note that the last number is the SPL_ALL
Dilution index not the dilution value.
In addition, the well Index can be replaced by the STD
generic index “_ALL” which returns the mean of SPL_ALL:2
all indexes of the well type. The “_ALL” suffix is CTRL1:3
limited to well types sample and sample control.
For standards, the mean of all standards can be
obtained by use of the standard prefix (e.g.
STD).

CUTOFF, VALIDATION AND INTERPOLATION FORMULAS


+ Addition CTL1+0.100
- Subtraction or negation BLK-0.010
/ Division CTL1/CTL2
* Multiplication STD1*0.10
() Represents inclusion (CTL1/CTL2)*100
Numeric value Represents a value 0.500, 54000
Well coordinates The value of a specific well A1; F4; H12
Well Identifier The mean of the specified Well Identifier BLK, SPL1
Well Identifiers use the following syntax: SPL1:1
<prefix><index>:<Dilution Index>
It is important to note that the last number is SPL#
the Dilution index not the dilution value.

In addition, the well index can be replaced by STD


the generic index “_ALL” which returns the
mean of all indexes of the well identifier. The
“_ALL” suffix is limited to well types sample and
sample control. For standards, the mean of all
standards can be obtained by use of the
standard prefix (e.g. STD).

The generic index “#” can be used which SPL_ALL:2


returns the mean value of each separate well CTRL1:3
index. The dilution index can also be replaced SPL#:#
by the generic index “#” which returns the
mean value of the well index at each
dilution/concentration index.
