A part of a larger group of people. The sample may or may not be chosen by chance. This term can also be a verb, meaning to choose this smaller group.
A specimen that is taken from food and tested for the purpose of identifying a foodborne pathogen or various kinds of chemical contaminants in food.
a single item or specimen from a larger whole or group, such as any single sample of any medium (air, water, soil, etc.).
Indivisible element of an image that is stored in computer memory. In Microsoft DirectX Transform, a DXSurface is composed of an array of samples. The terms pixel and sample are often used interchangeably.
From Portable Network Graphics (PNG) Specification (Second Edition) ( 2003-11-10) intersection of a channel and a pixel in an image. number of bits used to represent a sample value. In an indexed-colour PNG image, samples are stored in the palette and thus the sample depth is always 8 by definition of the palette. In other types of PNG image it is the same as the bit depth. mapping of a range of sample values onto the full range of a sample depth allowed in a PNG image.
A single number in the image data; for example, the red value of a pixel. A pixel is composed of one or more samples. When discussing physical data layout (in particular, in Image layout), we use "sample" to mean a number stored in the image array. It would be more precise but much less readable to say "sample or palette index" in that context. Elsewhere in the specification, "sample" means a color value or alpha value. In the indexed-color case, these are palette entries not palette indexes.
In acceptance sampling, one or more units of product (or a quantity of material) drawn from a lot for purposes of inspection to reach a decision regarding acceptance of the lot.
Pieces of a lot provided to registered buyers for an evaluation prior to bidding.
A sample consists of one or more service outputs drawn from a lot, the outputs being chosen at random.
The data obtained from one interruption of an executing program. The sample includes statistical information and a stack trace.
in statistics, a group of data chosen from all the possible data.

A generic term encompassing controls, blanks, unknowns, and processed samples, as described below: Blank: A sample of a biological matrix to which no analytes have been added that is used to assess the specificity of the bioanalytical method. Quality control sample (QC): A spiked sample used to monitor the performance of a bioanalytical method and to assess the integrity and validity of the results of the unknown samples analyzed in an individual batch. Unknown: A biological sample that is the subject of the analysis.
a single item produced before the main batch to check that the specification is correct.
Material collected from a source other than an animal or man for laboratory analysis (such as water sample or soil sample).
Term relates to the act of an individual interacting with a biometric system for the purpose of enrollment, identification or verification. The biometric data collected by the system is referred to as a sample.
A sample that contains data collected over a specified period of time during the execution of the application.
A dress or gown purchased by the salon from a designer to show prospective clients. Generally a size 8, 10 or 12, the gown may be tried on by only one, or by hundreds of people during its lifetime. As a result, samples can often be purchased at a discount, or, if in good condition, can be sold to customers that cannot wait for the normal delivery time for a custom gown. Most samples can be professionally cleaned, and with minor repairs, be nearly indistinguishable from a new gown. Samples can also be brought in for a limited time by the designer during a trunk show. Customer should always be told if the dress they are purchasing is a sample, or made-to-order.
Keywords:  drill, geologists, assay, mud, rock
Cuttings of a rock formation broken up by the drill bit and brought to the surface by the drilling mud. These are examined by geologists to identify the formation and type of rock being drilled.
A sample is one drill hole interval and the rock code and assay information associated with that interval. Generally this information is as it appears on the drill hole logs from the field. Therefore, a sampled drill hole database contains drill hole information prior to compositing.

A small quantity of tobacco (around two kilos) typically pulled from the process after the re-drying operation and compressed into a block measuring approximately 13 inches wide by 17 inches long by 4 inches thick. The purpose of a sample is to provide a representation of the overall quality and color of the tobacco being processed and to ensure consistency and uniformity within the blend.
To read the value of a signal at evenly spaced points in time; to convert representational data to sampled data (that is, synthesizing and rendering).
