To the Editor: A recent Technical Brief by Ellis et al. (1 ) showed the usefulness of heterophilic blocking tubes (HBTs) in identifying false-positive specimens, thereby providing an estimate of the incidence of false-positive test results on several analyzers, including the Roche Elecsys and Abbott Architect. The authors of the Technical Brief went on to suggest that HBT treatment led to particular overrecoveries in several assays on the Beckman Coulter Access analyzer. It is important to know… CONTINUE READING
