  • Reason
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics manufactures field correction for advia 1200, 1650, 1800 and 2400 chemistry systems. the manufacturer has determined that these calculation test systems produce unmarked results when the results of the individual tests used in the calculation have labels. in cases where the marks suppress the numerical result, no calculation will be made. if a numerical result is generated with the tag, the calculation test will be issued without the tag. the results of the individual tests used to calculate the most common test ratios (eg anion gap, a / g ratio, osmolality and estimated ionized calcium) are of clinical significance and are commonly reviewed and released together with the result of the calculated ratio. however, the% hba1c_3 method can be set to produce only a score for the relationship, which means that if the tests included in the calculation are labeled, they will not be displayed on the end result, potentially leading to an inappropriate assessment of the patient's glucose control.
