English term or phrase: mean assay blank
"Determination of Relative Binding Affinity (RBA) for Steroid Competitors

1. Subtract the **mean assay blank** from the mean counts at each standard and competitor concentration and enter the data into the four parameter sigmoidal computer program (xxx) to obtain the EC50 (Effective Concentration) of the standard and each of the competitor curves."

¿Sería correcto decir "valor promedio del blanco de la prueba"?

Mil gracias

valor medio del blanco (de la prueba/analítico)
Explanation:
Tu traducción es correcta, pero yo diría simplemente "blanco"; se sobrentiende que se trata del blanco de la prueba en cuestión.

Muchos saludos.

Hay quienes prefieren utilizar "solución en blanco", en vez de "blanco". Yo uso "blanco" a secas sin problema.
