Ion Selective Electrodes (ISEs) are used to measure some of the most critical analytes on clinical laboratory and point-of-care analysers. These analytes which include Na+, K+, Cl-, Ca2+, Mg2+ and Li+ are used for rapid patient care decisions. Although the electrodes are very selective, they are not free of interferences. It is important for laboratories to have an understanding of the type and extent of interferences in order to avoid incorrect clinical decisions and treatment.
