DATE: December 4th, 2020

TIME:  8:00am PT

 

With many methods available for HbA1c testing, how do you choose a method that’s best for your laboratory? The incidence and prevalence of diabetes mellitus is on the rise, and so is the use of HbA1c in the clinical laboratory. HbA1c is routinely used as the gold standard test to monitor, diagnose, and manage diabetic patients. However, there are several limitations to HbA1c as an assay in diabetes screening, including methodology, analytical interference, and biological interference. Different methodologies exist today to measure HbA1c such as immunoassay, enzymatic, HPLC and capillary electrophoresis. While many commercial methodologies are standardized, what are the limitations to each of these methods? What do you need to consider when choosing an HbA1c method for your laboratory?

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Review methods available for measuring HbA1c in the clinical laboratory.
  • Understand standardization of measuring HbA1c.
  • Examine clinical utility of different HbA1c assays.
  • Evaluate factors to consider when selecting an HbA1c method in your laboratory.

 

Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
