Dilution is an essential part of the clinical lab.
Without dilutions, the lab would not be able to perform testing on highly concentrated patient samples.
Every dilution has a dilution factor.
The lowest level of dilution is a times 2 dilution: 1 part solute and 1 part diluent; also know as a 1:2 dilution
Dilutions are necessary because many samples need to be diluted before they can be analyzed
Laboratory analyzers have set analytical limits as to how accurate they will be when measuring samples at certain concentrations.
