What is LOQ?

The Limit of Quantification (LOQ) is the lowest analyte concentration that can be quantitatively detected with a stated accuracy and precision . However, the determination of LOQ depends on the predefined acceptance criteria and performance requirements set by the IA developers. Although such criteria and performances are not internationally adopted, it is of importance to consider the clinical utility of the IA to define such performance requirements. [1]
