Table 2 A comparison between Lactate Pro meter results and the automated lactate analyser (Abx Pentra 400) of amniotic fluid collected under sterile conditions and spiked with a known quantity of lactate

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
