16) In fact, a numeric correction of Siemens' results before their use with any Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD EPI) cystatin C-based eGFR equations has been suggested for laboratories that measure cystatin C by using Siemens reagents, calibrators, and instrument systems.
The Thermo Scientific High-Level Model 81iH and Low-Level Model 81iL Mercury Calibrators also offer: a vapor generator to allow calibration of the instrument directly, as well as calibration through the extraction probe; Ethernet connectivity to provide efficient remote access for downloading data from the instrument; ability to perform diagnostic calibrations directly to the analyzer and probe; National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceability; and additional benefits of the iSeries platform, including flexible communications, ease of service and a simplified interface.
