Laboratory tests such as 'conventional biochemistry' are analytically robust and trusted, however, some common tests performed by immunoassays, eg thyroid function tests, are inherently more prone to analytical interference, giving rise to incorrect results. Interfering antibodies capable of causing potentially misleading results in immunoassay varied from about 0.4% to 4%. Furthermore, this form of interference cannot be predicted a priori and cannot be detected even by most stringent… CONTINUE READING
