Quantification of the uncertainty associated with a calibrator

A gauge is a solution containing a component of interest. The amount contained in this component is known. By comparing the results obtained with the evaluation of a sample of the real against the assessment gauge, makes it possible to interpret the signal and determine the presence or absence of the component of interest.

This interpretation which allows individuals to diagnose, determine the nature of a disease. Knowing the amount of analyte contained in the gauge is the key to a correct application of a diagnostic test for this, the uncertainty associated with establishing this amount is information essential to the proper functioning of a test.


This project seeks to identify and quantify all the factors that can contribute to uncertainty value assigned to a calibrator.

iContainers Solutions, S.L. The Amadeus cargo transport by sea and air: A model for projecting rates

iContainers instant quotes online delivery to their users and also allows to book cargo space on ships and aircraft. This is possible because in your search engine has more than 250,000 rates for all routes operated out of Spain or the United States (we have office in Miami). Since we operate (2007) have historical rates of shipping and airlines to freight and we want to use all that data to advance the creation of a model for estimating the price action of freight transportation.
