Assessment of coagulation assays on Roche Cobas t711 analyzer: performance and clinical implications.

OBJECTIVES: We performed an analytical assessment of five coagulation tests [i.e. prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), fibrinogen, thrombin time (TT) and D-dimer] on the Roche Cobas t711 analyzer and a comparison study with the methodology in use at our laboratory (i.e. Werfen ACL Top 750 analyzer), expanding the analysis to the clinical implications of Cobas t711 implementation.

METHODS: Imprecision studies were performed following the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) H57 A:2008 guideline. Linearity of D-dimer and fibrinogen tests was analysed according to the CLSI EP06-A: 2003 recommendations. For method comparison, the results were analyzed using the Bland-Altman plot and Passing-Bablok regression.

RESULTS: Imprecision met manufacturer claims for PT, aPTT and TT. D-dimer and fibrinogen tests showed a coefficient of variation (CV)% over manufacturer claims at certain concentration levels. Linearity ranges could not be verified. Comparison study revealed that results are not interchangeable for any test, a lower correlation for aPTT test and lower D-dimer results from Roche Cobas t711.

CONCLUSION: The strength of this study relies on the analysis of the clinical implications of reporting Cobas t711 results compared to those obtained with the methodology in use at our laboratory. Different sensibility to factor deficiency, anticoagulant therapy and interferences might explain lower correlation rates obtained for the aPTT test. Different monoclonal antibodies used for D-dimer determination might explain the lower results obtained with the Cobas t711 analyzer. This aspect needs further studies given the relevance of D-dimer test to exclude thrombotic events and reinforces the need of harmonization in the haemostasis laboratory.
