Table 1 Triplicate saline samples spiked for predicted Lo, Med and Hi results

From: A pilot study to determine the feasibility of collecting amniotic fluid samples from women during labour and measuring amniotic fluid lactate at point of care

  No lactate ‘Low’ lactate ‘Medium’ lactate ‘High’ lactate Lactate 62 mmol/L
Saline Lo* 1.5 ± 0.2 7.0 ± 0.1 21.1 ± 0.2 Hi 
Saline + fluoride preservative Lo* 1.6 ± 0.6 6.8 ± 0.1 19.8 ± 0.2 Hi*
  1. *Manufacturers instructions for the Lactate Pro indicate The Lactate Pro will display “Lo” when lactate levels are below 0.8 mmol/L and “Hi” will be displayed when lactate > 23.3 mmol.
