Fit of the model of Eq. (1) to processed data. Panel a Fitting results for model of Eq. (1) via traditional log-linear transformations. Though data processing improved goodness of fit, still a notorious bias remains. Panel b Fitting results by taking nonlinear regression as an analysis method. Shown spreading of replicates around the mean response curve is fair. Hence, \( \widehat{\uprho} \)=0.9777 entails suitable reproducibility of observed values via Eq. (1)
