I’ve just read the insert that comes with the test cassettes for my A-C Mobile, and next to a drawing of a little stripy box it says, “This test cassette delivers results that refer to plasma as per IFCC, and the symbol [on the box] distinguishes it from earlier test cassettes that were subject to a clinically relevant maltose interference.” I assume from that, that the change was to correct an inherent error when testing whole blood. On the other hand, I have been known to be wrong! :)
