Outline

1.         What is metrological traceability

2.         What is the clinical problem we are addressing

3.         How does metrological traceability work in lab medicine

4.         Commutable reference materials are important

5.         What is the role of the JCTLM

6.         How can a lab verify metrological traceability

Learning objectives

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

•          Use metrological traceability to assist with selection of measuring systems for a laboratory

•          Explain why some measurement results do not agree with those from a different measuring system

•          Identify and use available reference materials to verify the metrological traceability of measuring systems in a laboratory
