Formatted abstract
False positive troponin I (TnI) results with the Beckman AccuTnI method have been reported since 2002. Recent studies from my own laboratory have demonstrated that false positive TnI results occur with both serum and lithium heparin sample types with BD tubes and Greiner tubes, at a rate of 14/1000 samples on both the Access 2 and DxI800 analysers. These and other publications since then have attributed the errors to residual fibrin. The discrepant results are rarely reproducible...
