Elisa assay of DNase

Description

The DNase data frame has 176 rows and 3 columns of data obtained during development of an ELISA assay for the recombinant protein DNase in rat serum.

Usage

DNase

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

Run
an ordered factor with levels 10 < ... < 3 indicating the assay run.
conc
a numeric vector giving the known concentration of the protein.
density
a numeric vector giving the measured optical density (dimensionless) in the assay. Duplicate optical density measurements were obtained.

Examples

require(stats)
coplot(density ~ conc | Run, data = DNase,
    show = FALSE, type = "b")
coplot(density ~ log(conc) | Run, data = DNase,
    show = FALSE, type = "b")
## fit a representative run
fm1 <- nls(density ~ SSlogis( log(conc), Asym, xmid, scal ),
    data = DNase, subset = Run == 1)
## compare with a four-parameter logistic
fm2 <- nls(density ~ SSfpl( log(conc), A, B, xmid, scal ),
    data = DNase, subset = Run == 1)
summary(fm2)
anova(fm1, fm2)
