Abstract

Interlaboratory and intermethod variation in commercial and in-house tests used for the measurement of anticardiolipin antibodies (aCL) and lupus anticoagulant (LA) limit the diagnostic value of the results from these tests. This short review summarizes published and unpublished guidelines (some developed using consensus procedures) on aCL and LA testing that are aimed at decreasing assay variation.
