Quality indicator monitors instrument HIL interference detection
Although your instruments may automatically detect HIL interferences, shouldn’t the lab’s QC program include pre-analytical checks to monitor instruments’ ability to detect them? Studies show that interferences from hemolysed, icteric or lipemic (HIL) specimens are amongst the most common pre-analytical errors. Liquichek Serum Indices is a quality indicator intended for use as part of laboratory interference testing to monitor an instrument’s ability to detect these three types of samples. Replicating relevant concentrations of HIL interferences using human-sourced materials will allow confidence in the instrument's performance. With Bio-Rad's Unity Interlaboratory Program, the user is able to compare instrument responses among peer groups to help avoid costly test repeats.
