Recovery Recovery experiments are conducted to test whether the standard of the assay and analyte in the unknown sample behave chemically identical, or to exclude whether disturbing interactions of the analyte with the matrix or other compounds of the assay will lead to different assay results. Thus, in order to obtain insight into the identity of the analyte vs the standard, or 24 Sweep, Thomas, and Schmitt to study matrix interactions with the standard, known amounts of standard are added to samples with an already known amount of endogenous biomarker and the recovery of the added amount is calculated.
