Abstract

The Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists (AACB) has over the past 5 years been actively working to achieve harmonized reference intervals (RIs) for common clinical chemistry analytes using an evidence-based checklist approach where there is sound calibration and metrological traceability. It has now recommended harmonized RIs for 18 common clinical chemistry analytes which are performed in most routine laboratories and these have been endorsed by the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA). In 2017 another group of analytes including urea, albumin and arterial blood gas parameters were considered and suggested harmonized RIs proposed. This report provides an update of those harmonization efforts.
