Preanalytical Quality Control Practices in a Clinical Laboratory

Speakers: Huub van Rossum – Specialist in Laboratory Medicine and Clinical Chemistry at Netherlands Cancer Institute

Serum Indices

The Randox Acusera Serum Indices control is designed to be used to monitor an IVD instrument’s response in the detection of HIL samples. This control can be utilized in laboratory interference testing to assist in improving error detection of pre-analytical errors affecting clinical chemistry testing.

The introduction of high-throughput analysers with a built-in serum-index detection function has improved the assessment of HIL interference in clinical diagnostics. However, it is crucial that the HIL detection performance is stable and accurate over time. 

•    The HIL module may be subject to drift
•    Sample pipetting may have a bias that is calibrated out in most assays but not in the HIL detection
•    HIL sample carryover in cuvettes can be an issue if the cuvette washer is misaligned.
