Prepackaged laboratory kits for performing diagnostic procedures are frequently the most suitable alternative in the selection of laboratory methods, especially in the physicians' offices and small laboratories. Because of the previous lack of governmental regulations covering the manufacture of kits, many kits now on the market do not perform adequately and may produce misleading results. Each laboratory must evaluate each type of kit before it is put into routine use. This evaluation should include a review of published experimental data, comparison of results using the kit to results using a reference method and an experimental evaluation of the kit in the laboratory in which it is to be used.
