What happens when you swap reagents between two analyzers? Do the instruments become "strangers on a train"? Or is Reagent "Freaky Friday" what results?
Sigma Metric Analysis
New instruments running immunoassays - can they meet the goals of today and tomorrow? We evaluate real-world performance against goals set by Ricos, EuBIVAS, and the proposed goals of CLIA.
A recent inquiry asked about what to do with poor Sigma performance. After further analysis of an Erba XL 640 instrument, it brought to light some unhappy reality: there may be some instruments out there that are quite bad.
Continuing in our series of Sigma analysis of the leading diagnostic platforms, we turn our attention to the Abbott Alinity, and assess what goals can be achieved by this chemistry instrument.
Taking a new study on the DxC 700, we assess what goals can be achieved by one of the leading chemistry platforms.
