CLIA Moderately Complex Testing
a. Abaxis recommends control testing to follow federal, state and local guidelines. Please follow this link for the CMS state contacts: https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Legislation/CLIA/Downloads/CLIASA.pdf
Please see Section 2.4, “Testing Procedure and Interpretation of Results,” in the Piccolo Xpress Operator’s Manual.
The controls are analyzed the same as the patient samples; the only difference is that the results are stored in a memory separate from the sample results memory. It makes recalling control results easier. See Section 6, “Calibration and Quality Control,” in the Piccolo Xpress Operator’s Manual.
