CLSI EP12: User Protocol for Evaluation of Qualitative Test Performance Protocol describes the terms of the Positive Percentage Agreement (AEA) and the Negative Performance Agreement (NPA). If you have two binary diagnostic tests to compare, you can use an agreement study to calculate these statistics. In the FDA`s latest guidelines for laboratories and manufacturers, “FDA Policy for Diagnostic Tests for Coronavirus Disease-2019 during Public Health Emergency,” the FDA explains that users should use a clinical trial to establish performance characteristics (sensitivity/AAE, specificity/NPA). While the concepts of sensitivity/specificity are widely known and used, the terms AAE/APA are not known. In the case of a comparative study in which the candidate`s results and comparative results are considered positive or negative, these results can be summarized as follows: `true positive/negative rate ` sensitivity / (1-Specificity) Although the positive and negative match formulas are identical to those of sensitivity/specificity, it is important to distinguish them, because the interpretation is different. To avoid confusion, we recommend that you always use the terms positive agreement (AAE) and negative agreement (NPA) when describing the agreement of these tests. Sensitivity, specificity, prevalence of the disease, positive and negative forecast value and accuracy are expressed in percentages. This machine requires the user to type 4 numbers corresponding to a (true positive), b (false positive), c (false negative) and d (true negative) in the emergency table. Then click the “Calculate” button to get the summary statistics of positive agreement (AA), negative agreement (PNA) and agreement overall agreement (POA) as well as their confidence limits below and above 95%.

In the next blog post, we`ll show you how to use Analysis-it to perform the contract test with a treated example. For validation, the FDA recommends a “clinical agreement study,” as well as loD detection and cross-reactivity studies. We focus here on clinical matching, which generally compares the results of two different methods. The FDA states that “designed clinical samples” can be used, which means that it is acceptable to take samples with a high quality control material (preferably inactive).
