HbA1c Analysis Affected by Extreme Environmental Factors

Over the weekend of 8-9 July 2017 there was a failure of the air conditioning in the laboratory that performs HbA1c analysis. As a result the samples were exposed to unprecedented temperatures that ultimately affected the stability of the glycated haemoglobin in these samples.

These samples have unfortunately had to be deemed unsuitable for analysis.

We apologies for the inconvenience to anyone affected by this incident and have put steps in place to prevent this happening again.

If you have any further queries about this incident, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
