Representative performance data on the analyzers are given below. Results obtained in individual laboratories may differ.
Precision was determined using human samples and controls in an internal protocol with repeatability (n = 21) and intermediate precision (3 aliquots per run, 1 run per day, 21 days). The following results were obtained:
Bicarbonate values for human serum and plasma samples obtained on a Roche/Hitachi cobas c 701 analyzer (y) were compared with those determined using the corresponding reagent on a Roche/Hitachi cobas c 501 analyzer (x).
