This CD-ROM contains the proceedings of the AACC webinar, Biological Variation: Adding Value to Laboratory Results, held November 17, 2010. During this program, Callum G. Fraser, PhD, the author of AACC's top-selling book "Biological Variation: From Principles to Practice", (AACC Product # 1542) described what laboratorians need to know today to generate or find, and then apply, data on biological variation. Focusing more on application than theory, Dr. Fraser addresses how to add value to the interpretation of lab results by examining: how biological variation and biological individuality affect the interpretation of serum creatinine, its reference values, and the subsequent calculation of GFR; how knowledge of biological variation is vital for interpretation of change in serial measurements of troponin in patients with acute coronary syndromes; the impact of biological variation on the analytical quality required for POCT glucose; and the need for incorporating biological variation data into guidelines and recommendations.
