In addition to the chemistry, urine, and immunoassays verified, Bumrungrad International Hospital added verification of their HbA1c assay in 2021. This assay has a particularly demanding (small) performance specification, nevertheless Bumrungrad achieved this assay at world class quality. A truly impressive performance.
