Abstract

Clinical pathology results are typically interpreted by referring to population-based reference intervals, however the use of individualised (subject-based) reference intervals is more appropriate for measurands with a high degree of variation between individuals. Intrinsic biological variation represents physiological fluctuations over time, and contributes to the total variation of a laboratory result. Knowledge of biological variation can improve clinical decision making by allowing earlier detection of changes from disease processes and providing evidence of clinically significant change in serial results.
