Laboratory data in environmental and biomedical studies are frequently constrained by a lower limit of detection (LOD); however, multiple imputation (MI) methods can provide valid and robust parameter estimates, as well as explicit imputed values, that can be used as variables in subsequent statistical analyses.

Our group has already succeeded in detecting 2009 H1N1 influenza A with this device with a lower limit of detection (LOD) of 1 pg/mL (typical LODs of virus antigens are greater than a few ng/mL).
The lower limit of detection for the extraction method is approximately 25 ppb.
The lower limit of detection was 1 kIU/L at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3.
The test's downside is the poor sensitivity, which is approximately 50% in non-AIDS and 80% in AIDS patients, compared to culture; the lower limit of detection is approximately 1,000 yeast cells/mL CSF.
