Choice and Use of Kinds-of-property for Different Examination Purposes

The totality of properties can be divided into five types property as shown in Chapter 4: nominal properties, ordinal properties, linear differential properties, logarithmic differential properties and rational properties. Examples of these types of property are given in Chapters 8, 9 and 10. In the following chapter, kinds-of-quantity are divided according to compositional and material kinds-of-quantity as well as measurement principles. This Compendium is devoted to all clinical laboratory sciences. Historically, the clinical laboratories provided the results of measurements and for that purpose the concept of kind-of-quantity was developed. Later on, the need for a superordinate structure of examinations and kinds-of-property became apparent in order to present all the properties examined in the clinical laboratory (Section 4). The totality of properties can be divided into five types of property as shown in Section 4: nominal properties, ordinal properties, linear differential properties, logarithmic differential properties and rational properties. Examples of these types of property are given in Sections 8, 9 and 10.
