Standardisation of Reference Intervals: An Australasian View

By Graham Jones and Antony Barker

Abstract

The development of regional databases and doctors’ desktop programs that accept pathology results from different laboratories should improve patient care by allowing easy assessment of cumulative data. This has the potential to be unnecessarily confusing unless laboratories contributing to the databases provide standardised results and common reference intervals, where this is valid. The analytical methods that produce significantly different results need to be reported in a manner that avoids inappropriate interpretation
