This article, written by Jack Zakowski, FAACC and Peter Deman, PhD, outlines serum indices interference issues, how technological advances in automated instrument testing have ushered in new challenges, and what can be done on a quality control level to conquer these challenges.
Learn how serum index determinations are made, detected and responded to – and how that system can be significantly improved with the right quality process. Also provided is information on the latest international guidance documents and recommendations.
