  • Causa
    Whole blood samples (either fresh or frozen) for hba1c testing are pre-treated with multigent hemoglobin denaturant. the pre-treated samples are placed on the architect csystems and tested for glycated hemoglobin (hba1c) and total hemoglobin (thb) concentrations. according to the package insert, pretreated samples must be allowed to incubate for a minimum of 5 minutes at 15 to 30 °c prior to testing. pretreated samples are stated to be stable for “up to 8 hours at 15 to 30 °c and up to 48 hours if stored at 2 to 8 °c”. however, recent studies have demonstrated that hba1c measurements increase with time after the samples are pre-treated. therefore, it is necessary to change the handling instructions for pre-treating samples for the multigent hba1c assay. the investigation to determine root cause is ongoing.
