German term or phrase: Bezugsgebundenheit
From a scientific paper on the effects of Echinacea
Voraussetzung ist bei diesem Vorgehen auf jeden Fall die Anwendung einer einzigen, ganz bestimmten Zubereitung aus einer Charge und das Wissen um die Bezugsgebundenheit der erhaltenen Resultate.
I think I know what is meant but am desperate for a clear phrasing...
Thanks for any help.

and the awareness that the results obtained apply to the particular source of supply


Explanation:
Bezug = purchase, procurement, supply, order - in one meaning. This meaning fits in here where the advice is given to use only a certain batch, with a specific method of preparation. It also fits with what is generally known about herbal preparations, that the strength of their active ingredients, and thus their effectiveness, depends very much on e.g. the way they are grown and when harvested.

Explanation:
See how this flows in your context:
"At any rate, a prerequisite for this method is the use of a single, well-defined preparation from one batch and the knowledge that the obtained results can be tied to the reference."

The point of this paper is a point that pharmacologists try to pin down whenever they do whole plant or tissue extract research: the results must be reproducible and quantifiable in relation to the active ingredients presumed to be effective. There is still dispute which ingredients in Echinaceae are active ingredients.

Cheerio,
Dierk
