Hemolysis is one of the most commonly encountered pre-analytical sources of interference in the Clinical Biochemistry laboratory. Hemolysis is known to cause a variable interference in both cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and troponin T (cTnT) assays. Each laboratory should determine and publicize these effects. In this experimental study we determined the effect of in-vitro sample hemolysis on both types of cardiac troponin assays and whether the effect was clinically significant.
