Measurement accuracy is a subjective concept applied to all kinds of measurements. Generally speaking, accuracy refers to the degree of “closeness” of the measurement to a “true value.” This definition is usually good enough, but not always. The subjective nature of accuracy allows for a wide variety of claims that may technically be true, but misleading at the same time.

Removing residual contaminants from a protein solution at large scale is rarely a straightforward process. Handling large process volumes and working with buffer conditions incompatible with downstream processing steps is costly and time- consuming. Dilution and other steps to adjust conditions simply add time and cost to a process without improving the purity of the target molecule.
