German term or phrase: umschließen
I am at a loss as to what this sentence is trying to say. Hoping for an explanation of the meaning rather than a translation, but will happily accept either :)

***Die Konzentrationen der Faktoren sollen den in der Probe zu erwartenden Gehalt umschließen.***

Context: Preparation of calibration solutions:

Es werden mindestens fünf Kalibrierlösungen aus zwei unabhängig voneinander angesetzten Stammlösungen hergestellt. Die Konzentrationen der Faktoren sollen den in der Probe zu erwartenden Gehalt umschließen.

I assume, the translation should be "The concentrations of the factors should comprise the content to expected in the sample." However, I do not understand which factors are meant here (no prior mentioning) or the content of what is comprised. But then, I am by no means a chemistry expert, hopefully somebody with more expertise in this area can shed some light on this.

Explanation:

It is recommended to run at least a 3-6 point calibration curve. In constructing a suitable curve the levels of the calibration standards should bracket or include the range of expected results.
