Comparison of Minimum Detectable Concentration with the IUPAC Detection Limit

Detection capability is an important performance characteristic of a measurement process. It is characterized by ISO as minimum detectable value. Another characteristic, used in chemical measurements, was defined by IUPAC as the limit of detection. These and further closely related characteristics are compared and theoretically analysed. Directions for their use are given and exemplified using chemical trace analysis of lead.
