Correlation of Glucometer and Laboratory Blood Glucose Values in a Hospital Set-Up

Dr. R. Dhananjayan [4]


Abstract: The Glucose assay by Chemistry Analyzers in Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory involves various quality checks by trained staff under the supervision of a qualified Biochemistry Professional. But Glucose assay by Glucometer in bedside or critical care or emergency may not involve various quality checks as it is performed by Nursing and Allied Health Science professionals and not directly under the Biochemist. The nature of sample also differs. So there will be a variation in blood glucose values between laboratory testing and Glucometer Testing. This study was conducted to check whether the variation between laboratory testing and Glucometer values were within acceptable range and also to find ways to decrease the variation.
