An inconclusive result is noted in the AFTE Glossary as the outcome of a comparison in which there is

  • some agreement of individual characteristics and all discernable class characteristics, but insufficient for identification,
  • agreement of all discernable class characteristics without agreement or disagreement of individual characteristics due to an absence, insufficiency, or lack of reproducibility,
  • agreement of all discernable class characteristics and disagreement of individual characteristics, but insufficient for an elimination.
