Glycohaemoglobins were first used in routine clinical laboratories for diabetes monitoring around 1977 and at the time all methods had either no calibrators, or used material with assayed values derived from individual manufacturers' assays. Over the next five to fifteen years, lyophilised and whole blood sample exchanges were shown to improve inter-laboratory variability markedly. The use of a precise HPLC method as the "standard method" in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT… CONTINUE READING
