Evaluation of five new liquid stable applications on the Roche Cobas Integra

Evaluation of five new liquid stable applications on the Roche Cobas Integra

European Journal of Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Biochemistry 35(11): 877-880

In the present study the analytical performances of five new liquid applications on the Roche Cobas Integra were evaluated: urea and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in serum and glucose, creatinine and inorganic phosphorus in urine. The analytical evaluation consisted of imprecision, linearity and method comparison performed against either the actual Cobas Integra granulate applications or the corresponding methods on a Hitachi 704, according to the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards protocols. Over 3700 results were obtained within 3 months. Average values of within-run and between-day coefficients of variation (CVs) were 1.15% and 1.48%, respectively, holding to a mean total CV of 2.17%. The linearity was excellent for all the five applications evaluated as the relative non-linearity was always within 1.53%, thus completely fulfilling the 2.5% upper limit. A strict correlation was observed by comparing results of 120 samples with either the corresponding granulate applications on Cobas Integra or the Hitachi reagents. Linear regression analysis of the results yielded correlation coefficients always above 0.987 and the slopes of the Passing & Bablok regression lines did not deviate by more than 7% from unity. No drift was observed over 4 hours of operations. In conclusion, the performance of these new Cobas Integra liquid applications, as demonstrated by the present study, proved them to be highly suitable for routine use in clinical laboratories.
