Finally - the Michigan State Police has Done What We Always Knew They Should Do:

The MSP lab has for as long as we can remember - testified to judges and juries about hospital blood results. This was a problem because there is no accepted conversion factor from serum to whole blood. The statute requires that any blood alcohol reports be reported as whole blood values. How did we learn they stopped? Here’s irony for you - we reviewed an internal audit from late 2020 that was “self-critical” for not “updating” its “ customers” (cops and prosecutors). At any rate - at least this is progress as prosecutors can no longer rely on blood draw analyses for a medical purpose alone.
