I was wondering if you have been able to set up your lab track system to
handle batch testing?
For example, for a significant number of our immunoassay tests (eg hormones,
tumour markers) our patient volume is relatively low, and mostly tends to come
in on clinic days. So it is not unusual for us to be running a ratio of 30%
to 50% QC samples compared to patient samples. This probably isn't an
absolutely huge cost (reagents and QC), but it adds up over the number of
tests this applies to, and the extra troubleshooting might be hard to justify.
Looking forward to your responses, either by replying all; or if you reply to
me directly, I will collate the answers.
