This study utilizes three unique data sets to demonstrate the state of the art of HbA1c analyzers in a range of settings and compares their performance against the international guidance set by the IFCC task force for HbA1c standardization. The data is used to demonstrate the effect of tightening of those criteria and the study serves as a guide to the practical implementation of the sigma metrics approach in a range of clinical settings.
