I have made a calibration curve on excel, then used the function "=TREND(B2:B6,A2:A6,B8)" to automatically calculate the concentrations for me from previously determined absorbances.
However just to test them out, I added in the absorbances from the first 3 in my calibration curve, expecting to get the exact same concentrations, but they are slightly out, anyone know why this is?
I hope this makes sense, all help is very much appreciated.

If you were to plot your data on a chart, then add a line-of-best-fit, then the points do not fall exactly on the line (R2 = 0.9995, which is pretty good).
Using the TREND command is essentially doing the same thing.

Ok thanks, first time I've ever done one on excel, so wanted to make sure it was right before I started plugging in new absorbances.Last edited by S.Duncan; 12-05-2015 at 17:44.
