Table 1.

Two examples of the autoverification cutoff logic used during setup.1

AnalyteCholesterol, mmol/L (mg/dL)Glucose, mmol/L (mg/dL)
Reference range3.37–6.22 (130–240)3.61–6.11 (65–110)
Measurement range0.65–18.13 (25–700)0.56–44.4 (10–800)
Critical value limits2.22–27.75 (40–500)
Autoverification limits2.07–11.50 (80–450)3.33–18.04 (60–325)
  • 1 Autoverification limits for cholesterol were determined as follows: midpoint of reference range, [(6.22 + 3.37)/2 =] 4.79; cutoff limit: low, [(4.79–0.65)/2 =] 2.72; high, [4.79+(18.13–4.79)/2 =] 11.46 (rounded up to 11.50).
