2015 № 9 Financial cost estimate of the laboratory tests performance in the samples with hemolysis
Two different ways of hemolysis evaluation in blood serum were analyzed for better effectiveness as a most frequent mistake in pre-analytical phase. Automatic measurement of hemolysis index (HI) was proved to be of the highest effectiveness as an economical as well as a patient safety matters.
2019 № 7 Some approaches to the labor normalization in the laboratory diagnostics
The laboratory service is one of the most difficult from the point of view of labor normalization, which is determined,
first of all, by the many and ever-increasing number of studies, the variety of equipment used, etc. Laboratory
labor standards were developed more than 20 years ago. They relate primarily to non-automated techniques and do not
reflect the modern organization of labor, new laboratory technologies, etc. Due to the lack of centrally developed labor
standards, medical organizations are forced to determine the load indicators, the number of necessary laboratory workers
mainly by expert means, or try to independently develop labor standards. In these conditions, it is necessary to determine
the main approaches to the implementation of labor standards in the laboratory service, to develop normalization methods
for various research groups. The authors' suggestions were the result of joint research by Federal Research Institute for
Health Organization and Informatics of Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation (Moscow) and St. Petersburg State
Budgetary Healthcare Institution Consultative and Diagnostic Center for Children (St. Petersburg).
