An inter-laboratory survey of paediatric bilirubin analyses.
  1. A St John,

    A regional quality control trial of paediatric bilirubin analyses is described. The overall performance of the group was unsatisfactory with an unacceptably high inter-laboratory variation. The use of a common standard produced improvement in performance but it is concluded that the poor performance was also due to methodological problems. This lack of agreement between laboratories is a major problem when patients are transferred between hospitals.
