English term or phrase: Slope / Intercept [biochemistry]
A (blood) analyzer method is compared with other methods. The results are listed in a table next to the following 6 terms:
Correlation / Slope / Intercept / Sample Range / N / Comparative Method.
Any idea what slope and intercept are in German?
Thanks in advance,

Steigung / Achsenabschnitt
Explanation:
Sounds like these terms pertain to various parts of a curve.

slope of a curve / Steigung f einer Kurve
slope (math) / Richtungskoeffizient m
intercept (of an axis) (math) / Achsenabschnitt m
[Ernst]

These terms are also supported by Eisenreich/Sube, WB Mathematik, Babel/Hagemann/Höhne, FWB Biotechnologie, and Kucera, WB Chemie

slope-intercept form - Richtungsgleichung
[Eisenreich/Sube]

Slope was the subject of a ProZ query a while back, cf. also
