  1. This shows the mean patient bias for each valid laboratory method, the upper and lower limits of acceptable commutability (±2sP) for each method and the mean bias values for 16/190 obtained by that method. Values underlined indicate where the mean bias is outside the limits of acceptable bias for that method. As this assessment requires the bias to be constant across the range of AMH concentrations measured, the slope of the bias for 16/190 and the patient samples is also shown
