      Objective: Kidney markers are some of the most frequently used laboratory tests in patient care, and correct clinical decision making depends upon knowledge and correct application of biological variation (BV) data. The ...
    • The European Biological Variation Study (EuBIVAS): weekly biological variation of cardiac troponin I estimated by the use of two different high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I assays 

      Ceriotti, Ferruccio; Marco, Jorge Diaz-Garzon; Fernandez-Calle, Pilar; Maregnani, Alessio; Aarsand, Aasne Karine; Coşkun, Abdurrahman; Jonker, Niels; Sandberg, Sverre; Carobene, Anna (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Cardiac troponins (cTn) are specific markers for cardiac damage and acute coronary syndromes. The availability of new high-sensitivity assays allows cTn detection in healthy people, thus permitting the estimation ...
    • Systematic review and meta-analysis of within-subject and between-subject biological variation estimates of 20 haematological parameters
