Summary Clinical laboratories must provide accurate test results to protect patient safety. Clinical laboratory samples frequently contain high amounts of bilirubin or lipemia. This book provides the empirical and theoretical foundation for bilirubinemia or lipemia and the impact they have on the quality of results and patient safety. It discusses the origins of interferences and their proper evaluation.
