Precision and Accuracy

Precision and accuracy are important concepts in chemical analysis. Precision refers to the exactness (related to repeatability) of a measurement, while accuracy refers to how close the measurement is to the “true” value. The accuracy of RICCA CHEMICAL COMPANY products is ensured by their traceability to NIST Standard Reference Materials and other NIST standards when suitable standards exist. Our very tight manufacturing specifications give you high precision and ensure minimal lot-to-lot variation.
