Stability study and external quality assessment scheme implementation for complement components dosage on edta plasma

Résumé

Although the use of EDTA-containing collection tubes is known to stabilize the complement analytes and to make the results more reliable, no external quality assessment (EQA) scheme based on EDTA plasma samples is available to date in France. Consequently, a number of clinical laboratories currently participate to EQA program on samples whose matrix is different from their routine practice. The aim of this work was to offer a new external quality assessment scheme, as an inter-laboratory exchange (ILE). The ILE samples come from pooled EDTA plasmas of healthy subjects and are diluted to obtain distinct control levels. The protocol has been validated on CH50, C3, C4 and C1-inhibitor measurements, through: (i) a stability study of post-centrifugation storage of EDTA plasma samples at room temperature, 4̊C and -20̊C; (ii) the demonstration of the linearity of the dilution steps; and (iii) a stability study of the diluted samples. Our results demonstrate a four-weeks stability of the ILE samples prepared and stored according to our protocol. Those results are compatible with the ILE implementation constraints, and the program has been implemented in January 2018. The one-year ILE implementation experience is also presented. The newly implemented ILE will be useful for the accreditation of the complement activity of French laboratories using EDTA plasma samples.
