About this webinar

Cases presented will cover problems that can arise in the pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical phases of testing. This includes 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
  • Calcium
  • 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).
