 English term or phrase: measurable This is related to Automapping. Mesurables are sets of data relating to one specific Plate e.g. replicate data. I assume what it is, but I do not guess how it's translated.

 Thank you very much. Yes, measurable and measurable set would be interchangeably used in the same context. And a measurable may be alway a "set" composed of multiple elements that could be counted as plural. Much helps! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

I just found a paper that seems to use ¥"measurable¥" and ¥"measurable set¥" interchangeably:

¥"any finite union of measurables is measurable; when the intersection of two measurable sets is measurable, the sum of its measure with that of their union is equal to the sum of their measures.¥"
