CLSI Publishes New Edition of Point-of-Care Screening Document
CLSI Publishes POCT14—Point-of-Care Coagulation Testing and Anticoagulation Monitoring, 2nd Ed. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published POCT14--Point-of-Care Coagulation Testing and Anticoagulation Monitoring, 2nd Edition.
POCT14 provides recommendations to users and manufacturers of point-of-care coagulation testing devices for monitoring heparin and vitamin K antagonist therapy and for the evaluation of hemostasis, and helps to ensure reliable results comparable with those obtained by routine medical laboratory testing.
POCT14 provides information on POCT testing for:
- Vitamin K antagonists such as PT and INR.
- Heparin (eg, APTT and ACT).
Information on potential assay interferences, including direct oral anticoagulants are also discussed.
