Stocks of the ISTH/Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) Secondary Coagulation Standard Plasma, Lot #4, are predicted to run out in 2019 and a replacement is currently in production. The National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) is coordinating the project to calibrate Lot #5 and you are invited to participate.
The SSC Coagulation Standards Standing Committee was formed as a result of a meeting between SSC members and diagnostic manufacturers to discuss the need to offer a uniform plasma standard for use by the manufacturers in labeling their coagulation calibrators\
Please complete this questionnaire indicating the analytes you wish to calibrate and return by December 31. Participants will receive a report of the study and will be asked for opinions before the results are published at the SSC 2018 annual meeting in Dublin, Ireland in July 2018.
