German term or phrase:Messempfindlichkeitswert
"Das Ergebnis einer Kalibriermessung ist die Zellkonstante. Die Zellenkonstante gibt den ***Messempfindlichkeitswert*** des gesamten Messsystems unter den jeweils gewählten Messbedingungen an. Diese Zellenkonstante hat die Dimension
„ Digit 10E3 pro Mol der Substanz, gelöst in 1kg Lösungsmittel.“
Talking about making calibration solutions for an osmometer. I can't find a translation or even a single Web reference for the word "Messempfindlichkeitswert". Should I just translate it literally as "measurement sensitivity value" or is there some other specific chemistry term I should use here? TIA for your help.
Thanks Ingeborg, Inge and Ken. A particularly interesting comment by Ken there. Thanks also to rainerc for a plausible suggestion. Appreciate everyone's assistance. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
