Webinar: Avoiding Common Pitfalls in Laboratory Testing for Providers and Laboratorians

January 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“In this case-based presentation, we will describe the most common pitfalls in laboratory testing that healthcare providers and clinical laboratory experts should be aware of, and how to mitigate their effects. Cases presented will cover problems that can arise in the pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical phases of testing, including sample collection, transportation, and processing, effect of interferences on choice of analytical testing platforms, and the importance of using assay-specific pediatric reference intervals. Tests discussed will primarily include common chemistry tests like potassium, bicarbonate, creatinine, sodium, glucose and calcium and ALP. Attendees will be provided with practical ways to detect these issues (for providers), and how to reduce the likelihood of their occurrence (for laboratorians).”
