Precision is a measure of the ability of a test to give the same result repeatedly for the same sample. 11. The standard deviations and coefficients of variations of replicate counts of individual patient specimens are measures of the precision of sperm count determination. MicroCell chambers are more precise than hemocytometers [38], while Makler chambers require very strict QC to achieve accurate and precise results. If loaded correctly, with the cover glass seated firmly on the silicone posts, the Makler chamber produces slightly lower concentration values than hemocytometry, although the precision is comparable if daily QC is performed.
