What is the Cost of a Redraw - Sample Collection

One of our quality metrics is mis-label samples, for all sample types. I am looking to attach a cost of mis-label and recollection to our System. In looking at articles, I can only uncover one from 2014. Does anyone have information/articles/what you use on this that they can share? My focus is both in phlebotomy and in non-lab (RN) collections.

New Scientific Short:- What is the Difference Between Fructosamine and Glycated Albumin?


I believe that Fructosamine (or Glycated Albumin) is an under-utilized analyte (unlike HbA1c). Not only does it provide an average glucose estimation over 30 days, it also avoids the HbA1c pitfalls (Hb variants). This Short talks about this analyte. Hopefully, assay harmonization, and more studies about its clinical utility will help realize the analyte's potential.
