yes!  But make sure you follow the side by side method change protocol in Standard methods before changing methods and also order a PT standard prior to use!

You do not need to do the side-by-side comparison found in Std. Methods as it is for evaluating non-standard methods.  Enterolert is approved and there is no need to conduct any evaluation against another method.

 

The analysis of a PT depends more on lab certification rules than anything else.  I would analyze some form of known standard as part of in initial demonstration of competency to assure that you are performing the method correctly.
