POCT Creatinine

Creatinine is a well established biochemical marker for renal function and is widely used to calculate estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR). In a point-of-care setting this test is often used as a screen to exclude kidney damage immediately prior to the administration of potentially nephro-toxic drugs or contrast media. EQA samples are distributed bi-monthly at an appropriate physiological range to correctly reflect the performance with patient samples.

Frequency: Bimonthly

Samples per set: 3 x 0.5mL samples
