Résumé : Preanalytical issues are a major part of routine coagulation laboratory errors. Automation in detection of preanalytical problems, including hemolysis, icterus and lipemia (HIL), improper tube fill volume, and undue clotting, has recently been implemented on specific hemostasis instruments. The aim of this study was to assess the added value of a new preanalytical module integrated into hemostasis analyzers compared to visual inspection of samples.
