Validating a Diagnostic Device Using Gage R&R and DOE


Through the use of a customer success story, I will illustrate the successful use of Gage R&R and DOE techniques for improving the quality of a diagnostic test machine.

First, we will use Gage R&R to assess a measurement device’s ability to consistently assay diagnostic test strips used to perform a urinalysis. While it is only possible to perform a single assay on each test strip, multiple test strips used to assay the same urine sample act as repeated measurements on the same “part”. This will allow us to perform a traditional Gage R&R analysis even though the measurement itself is destructive.

Next, we will use a central composite design DOE to investigate the interference of other substances present in urine on the measured glucose reading. This study uses both repeats and replicates to analyze the mean and variation of glucose readings. We will compare the results from the experiment to specification limits to ultimately measure the capability of this measurement device.

Following the presentation, attendees can apply what they learned to assess their own measurement systems and design experiments that consider both mean and variation in order to ensure adequate process capability.
