One place I worked I got the "third party" to calibrate our weights against their very accurate high quality weights just after they finished calibrating the scale.

  12. My experience is that interference from rouleaux and cold autoantibodies in Gel is not unusual but this may depend on your patient population. As rouleaux is not an antibody an AHG crossmatch is not required. If you IS crossmatch you must (in my opinion) saline replace so you show any agglutination is interference and can therefore enter a negative/compatible/non-reactive result into your LISS, probably with a comment.
