Data Analysis with Flagged Points
When a point is flagged, it is excluded from any calculations.
Where replicates are in use, any remaining samples that are not flagged will be used. For example, if Unknown1 is made up of three replicates measured in positions A1, A2, and A3, and position A1 is flagged, then any reference to Unknown1 will refer to the average of A2 and A3.
