A series of succinct educational lectures, from coagulation experts, designed to fit around your working day. In our firth session we are joined by Stephen MacDonald ,Principal Clinical Scientist at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Stephen will be discussing the topic of comparisons in the clinical lab. This is a deceptively complex area, especially in haemostasis, where many factors come into play to influence the comparability of results. From sample collection to matrix effects and acceptance limits, Stephen takes us on a whistle-stop tour of this area.
