Innovative Diagnostics Research Posters

Multisite study of AST analytical performance reveals disparities in global performance specifications.

Evaluating the performance of 19 laboratories and 30 instruments from around the world reveals that CLIA and Rilibak performance specifications are probably too lenient, and that “Ricos goals” are a more appropriate performance specification.

This scientific poster was presented at the 2017 AACC/ASCLS conference in San Diego. Our Innovative scientists involved in this study were Arvind Gopala Krishnan, Chan Yi Chun, Norizhar Zakaria and Lim Hock Huat.     



High prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency among 173 patients attending a community rheumatology clinic: A profile of demographics and treatment.

Vitamin D is not only important for calcium and bone metabolism but also increasingly recognized to play a part in the severity and pathogenetic risk of developing non skeletal pathologies like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Osteoarthritis (QA), Cardiovascular diseases and Diabetes. Vitamin D deficiency is common in Singapore and has been reported in 5 previous studies since 2009, but none have reported the disease associations and treatment outcomes. We report the prevalence, clinical demographics and treatment of 173 patients who underwent Vitamin D testing in our community rheumatology clinic.

This  poster was presented by our Laboratory Manager, Arvind Gopala Krishnan at the 3rd MEDLAB ASIA PACIFIC 2016 , which was held from 22 – 24 March 2016 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore.
