Harmonization of IVD Results Between Instrument Platforms

An AACC member started a poll asking whether other laboratorians would be in favor of establishing a centralized lab to harmonize chemistry results across all platforms.

Several other members have answered the poll, including one who agreed that harmonization will positively impact patient care, but pointed out that setting up a centralized lab to accomplish this—though the idea has merit—would be difficult to do from a practical standpoint.
