Nearly all testing errors detected by delta check alerts in this study were in the preanalytical phase of testing, including interference by hemolysis, lipemia, or icterus; contamination by intravenous fluids; and effects of clotting.
There was no evidence of spectrophotometry interference since this patient's hemolysis, lipemia, and icterius indicies were below their reporting limits.
