Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The VITROS 5,1 FS analytical system was evaluated. The measurement of the serum proteins and HDL cholesterol with the newly developed MicroTip technology was compared with other nephelometric and turbidimetric methods. The within-run imprecision for apolipoprotein A1, apolipoprotein B, complement 3, complement 4, transferrin, immunoglobulin A, immunoglobulin M, immunoglobulin G and HDL cholesterol showed coefficients of variation between 0.4% and 4.7%. The day-to-day imprecision showed coefficients of variation between 0.5% and 4.0%. The correlation with the comparative methods (nephelometric or turbidimetric) was good, with Pearson correlation coefficients of between 0.959 and 0.995. The comparison of apolipoprotein Al showed a slope of about 0.76. An explanation for the difference could not be found. The VITROS 5,1 FS analytical system is a reliable routine instrument which fits into a large pediatric laboratory of a university.
