Spanish term or phrase: fourth statistics phrase
Are the abbreviations in caps correct here
and
does "valor medio" mean "average value"?

"En la tabla 2 se muestra el error estándard relativo de predicción para el conjunto de muestras de calibración %RSEPC y predicción %RSEPV, el **valor medio** y la desviación estándard relativa encontrada para 11 replicados de una muestra que contenía una concentración 1x10-4 M de sulfatiazol y sulfadiazina, 5x10-5 M de sulfamerazina y 1,1x10-4 M de sulfametazina. Los resultados aunque son bastante buenos, destacan por el diferente orden de magnitud en la exactitud alcanzada para cada sulfonamida. Por un lado tenemos que el sulfatiazol se cuantifica con muy buena exactitud (%RSEPC y %RSEPV
