Bias detection curves for hs-cTnT MA and MR procedures. Median number of patient samples affected until error detection (MNPed) needed for bias detection using (A) MA procedure, (B) MR procedure with a cut-off value of 5 ng/L, (C) MR procedure with a cut-off value of 14 ng/L, and (D) MR procedure with a cut-off value of 52 ng/L. For the MA curves, 3 and 150 ng/L were used as lower and upper truncation limits, respectively. Numbers in the keys within each panel represent the applied block size for the MA or MR calculation. The dashed line represents the average daily run size of 180 patient results.

Abbreviations: hs-cTnT, high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T; MA, moving average; MR, moving rate.
