Clinical laboratory reference intervals (RIs) are essential for clinical diagnosis, treatment and therapeutic monitoring. Locally established RIs are required to correctly interpret clinical laboratory results. In Ethiopia, clinical laboratory test results are interpreted based on RIs derived from a western population.

Clinical pathology results are typically interpreted by referring to population-based reference intervals. The use of individualised (subject-based) reference intervals is more appropriate for measura...
To analyze consistency of reference limits and widths of reference intervals (RIs) calculated by six procedures and evaluate a protocol for merging intrainstitutional reference data.
Background External quality assessment (EQA) programs for general chemistry tests have evolved from between laboratory comparison programs to trueness verification surveys. In the Netherlands, the imp...
Pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). D-dimer is a biomarker used as an exclusion criterion of VTE disease, but its usefulness during pregnancy shows limitati...
Background Conventional establishment of reference intervals for hematological analytes is challenging due to the need to recruit healthy persons. Indirect methods address this by deriving reference i...
Repeated blood sampling within a regular soccer season of German first league clubs shall serve to define soccer-specific reference values for routine parameters determined from venous blo...
This is an interim report for POC testing of skyla Clinical Chemistry Analyzer and four skyla Test Systems (ALB, BUN, GLU, and TP). The analyses are performed with skyla Clinical Chemistry...
To evaluate and compare the effects on safety measures and clinical chemistry after BLI800 in two groups of patients and one group of healthy controls. The patient groups will be those wi...
The objective of this quality improvement study was to determine the effect of an institution-wide switch of routine bloodwork from four-week intervals to six-week intervals on the achieve...
Results from this study will be used to verify that the published pediatric reference intervals are met on the DxH 520 Hematology Analyzer for the pediatric age ranges.
The specialty of ANALYTIC CHEMISTRY applied to assays of physiologically important substances found in blood, urine, tissues, and other biological fluids for the purpose of aiding the physician in making a diagnosis or following therapy.
A critical disease progression, often measured by a set of clinical parameters, which activates HOSPITAL RAPID RESPONSE TEAM.
The lengths of intervals between births to women in the population.
Graphical representation of a statistical model containing scales for calculating the prognostic weight of a value for each individual variable. Nomograms are instruments that can be used to predict outcomes using specific clinical parameters. They use ALGORITHMS that incorporate several variables to calculate the predicted probability that a patient will achieve a particular clinical endpoint.
