Abstract

Problems related to the interpretation of results and clinical consequences of analysis in Immunohematology laboratory are discussed. On the basis of an Hospital-Based HTA (HB-HTA) approach, most common errors of the analytical processes have been highlighted, divided in preanalytical, analytical and post analytical phase. For each phase, the adoption of automated instruments has enabled a strong reduction of errors, monitored by using indicators related to the analytical phases.
