Common Interferences in Laboratory Tests

Common interferences in Laboratory tests - Wednesday 21 February 2017

We all know they exist and occur, but what do common interferences really mean for the person on the bench or the person looking at the results?

This presentation will look at what “interference” actually is, what can cause “inference” in our tests, and how simple or difficult it can be to detect “interference” when it occurs.
