More than 70% of all medical decisions are based on diagnostic results. These results are mainly obtained from blood samples. What most people don’t know: blood samples are extremely sensitive to environmental conditions. Thus, the quality of human blood samples can deteriorate due to external factors during handling, transport and storage. As a result, laboratory results are technically correct but do no longer represent biologically the health status of the patient.
International scientific studies have shown that at least 4,7 % of all human samples deteriorate undetected so much in quality between patient and lab that these blood samples at the time of analysis do not correspond with the patient anymore. In addition up to 25 % of all human blood samples deteriorate undetected in quality with possible effects on the biological correctness of the analytical measurement outcome. Today these changes can’t be detected due to incomplete and analogue sample monitoring. We change this.
