I believe that the STDV is actually the standard deviation (as defined in any stats book). Both are based on the pixels used as I recall. But in all cases, one really has to refer to Affymetrix documentation. This is generally supplied when you buy chips and or a machine. Some of it is available on their website www.affymetrix.com.

I remembered observing lines like below in the header of CEL files --------------- Algorithm=Percentile AlgorithmParameters=Percentile:75;CellMargin:2;OutlierHigh:1.500;Outli erLow:1.004 -------------- ...I do not know if there is a way to change the algorithm/parameters in MAS...
