Find articles by Ken Sikaris. The most frequently clzi causes of haemolysis of blood samples include use of inappropriately small gauge needles during phlebotomy and transfer of blood from a syringe into a vacutainer tube via a needle e.
Clin Chem Lab Med. When a POCT result shows a result e. Errors in laboratory medicine. The interference can be the result of various mechanisms including:. Ann Acad Med Singapore. Published clinical outcome studies describing performance requirements for the specific analyte. The interference with immunoassays is less frequent than with photometric assays, but is still a significant consideration; one of the most commonly affected immunoassays are the cardiac Troponin assays.
