Do we have any studies of the interference about Lipemic, hemolyzed or microbially contaminated samples poor results and not applicability?
We are doing interference studies each time when we develop a new test. We use an interference kit from Japan, measuring bilirubin F and C, hemoglobin, chyle and rheumatoid factor. We test normally 2 positive samples with concentration level around the cutoff and 1 medium to high positive sample. The data are available for all tests. However, we never saw any interference in one of our tests.
However, as we never can measure all kinds of samples, we put this warning of possible poor results in all our DfUs.
Poor means bad and can go in every direction. It depends which part of the test reacts with the substance. As we have never seen these poor results we have no personal experience.
