      Hence, it is difficult to identify and reduce errors and risk of errors in laboratory medicine. Laboratory errors have a reported frequency of – % of all test results which in turn has huge impact on diagnosis and patient management as 80–90 % of all diagnosis are made on the basis of laboratory tests [1]. Major advances in automation and instrumentation have helped reduce laboratory-associated errors over the last decade, but with pre-analytical errors currently accounting for up to 75% of all mistakes, laboratory medicine professionals must keep expanding their focus to what is happening outside of the lab.

    Lab test results usually contain some type of unit of measurement. The units provide a way to report results so that they can be compared. Usually, but not always, the same test is reported in the same units no matter which lab did the test. Units of measurement that may be used for lab test results include: Femtoliters. Grams (g). A test used to measure how well the lungs work. Function Tests, Pulmonary, Lung Function Tests, Pulmonary Function Test, Test Book Nephrology Book Neurology Book Obstetrics Book Ophthalmology Book Orthopedics Book Otolaryngology Book Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Book Pediatrics Book Pharmacology Book Practice Management Book.

    As stated before, a detailed definition of the quantity to be measured, i.e. the “measurand”, constitutes an indispensable part of any analytical reference system. 28 In laboratory medicine, many hundreds of different analytes are measured or by: cooperate to establish a Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine, with the acronym JCTLM. The goal of the JCTLM is to provide a worldwide platform to promote and give guidance on internationally recognized and accepted equivalence of measurements in laboratory medicine and traceability to appropriate measurement standards.

While some factors creating interference, can be identified in the laboratory, detecting many others is often dependent on clinical details unavailable to the laboratory scientists or pathologists.

Record the ID code on your report form. Measure the dimensions of the two geometric shapes: length and width of the rectangle, and the diameter of the circle.

Record these values on your lab report. When finished, return the ruler and sheet to the front bench. Use your measurements to calculate the area of each shape.

In Part A of this lab, you will measure the dimensions (length, width, diameter) of several geometric shapes. Using a ruler, you measure the length of a rectangle to be cm and the width to be cm.
