Establishing Reference

Establishing Reference Ranges • QA Users can establish a reference range consisting of an upper and lower limit for each analyte, patient type, and sample origin. • An out-of-range patient test result will be flagged “H” (High) or “L” (Low) on the printout and the result will flash on the Results screen. Setting up patient specific reference ranges: 1. Highlight Reference Ranges from the TEST SETTINGS menu. Press edit. 2. Highlight ”on” button. Press next. 3. If desired, keep default name for reference range or change by deleting and using alphanumeric keypad to name new patient type. 4. Select desired analyte from the picklist. If reference ranges will be entered for multiple analytes, select “All”. Press edit. 5. Enter the lower reference limit and press next. 6. Enter the upper reference limit and press next. 7. Continue for all appropriate analytes. 8. Repeat for each new patient and sample type, i.e. arterial, venous.

Establishing Species-Specific Ranges • IRMA TRUpoint can store normal ranges for multiple species and sample types. An out of range patient test will be flagged “H” (High) or “L” (Low) on the printout and the result will flash on the Results screen. Setting up Species Specific Reference Ranges: 1. Highlight Reference Ranges from the TEST SETTINGS menu. Press edit. 2. Highlight ”on” button. Press next. 3. Enter a patient species for each reference range by deleting default name and using alphanumeric keypad to spell name; i.e. canine, feline, equine, etc. 4. Select desired analyte from the picklist. If reference ranges will be entered for multiple analytes, select “All”. Press edit. 5. Enter the lower reference limit and press next. 6. Enter the upper reference limit and press next. 7. Continue for all appropriate analytes. 8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each sample type; arterial, venous,etc. 9. Repeat steps 3-7 for each new species added.
