  • Variation in Laboratory Reporting of Haemolysis - a Need for Harmonisation. [Journal Article]
  • CBClin Biochem Rev 2015; 36(4):133-7
  • Petinos P, Gay S, Badrick T
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is a need to harmonise the way laboratories report analytes in the presence of haemolysis. This would involve adopting a uniform definition of HI and a protocol for laboratories to confirm for themselves the level of HI at which each analyte is no longer reported, as this is method dependent and so will vary from laboratory to laboratory.
  • Reporting Thyroid Function Tests in Pregnancy. [Review]
  • CBClin Biochem Rev 2015; 36(4):109-26
  • McNeil AR, Stanford PE
  • While there is agreement that overt maternal hypothyroidism (serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) >10 mIU/L) should be treated immediately, the evidence is mixed regarding the harm associated with...
  • Regional Variation in Analytical Techniques used in the Diagnosis and Monitoring of Porphyria: a Case for Harmonisation? [Journal Article]
  • CBClin Biochem Rev 2015; 36(2):63-74
  • Sies CW, Cronin V, … Zoanetti J
  • CONCLUSIONS: While some aspects of porphyria testing are relatively consistent between laboratories, other diagnostic techniques vary widely. A wide variety of individualised reference intervals and reporting techniques is currently in use world-wide. While most of the participants in the survey are regional reference centres specialising in the diagnosis of porphyria and, as such, their diagnostic capability is not in question, international guidelines or global harmonisation of analytical techniques should allow better inter-laboratory comparisons to be made, ultimately improving diagnostic accuracy.
