Latex-enhanced immunonephelometry was used to measure hs-CRP.
Contract notice: Delivery of reagents, calibrators for the determination of specific proteins by immunonephelometry along with renting analyzer for a period of 36 months.
Indeed, in human laboratory medicine, comparisons between CZE, immunonephelometry, and colorimetry suggest that direct quantification of albumin and alpha-1 globulin by UV absorption is more accurate than protein staining.
By employing the same immunonephelometry method commonly used for evaluating ESR, the data regarding RF and CRP was also derived.
Serum hs-CRP was determined using high-sensitivity CRP immunonephelometry (BN, Dade-Behring; Marburg, Germany).
Blood samples were analyzed by means of a commercial enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for IL-6 (quantitative high sensitive IL-6 immunoassay; RD Systems GmbH, Wiesbaden, Germany) and immunonephelometry for fibrinogen and high-sensitivity CRP (Dade Behring Marburg GmbH, Marburg, Germany).
CRP is measured by a high sensitivity test (CardioPhase hsCRP, Dade Behring, Marburg, Germany) for the quantitative determination of CRP in human serum or plasma by means of enhanced immunonephelometry, using monoclonal antibodies to CRP.
In one study, immunonephelometry gave values that were approximately three-fold lower than immunoturbidimetry, meaning that an albumin concentration of about 30 mg/mL (MA range) with this immunoturbidimetry would only register as about 10 mg/mL (normoalbuminuric range) with immunonephelometry.
12] Molecular size effects are minimized--but not completely removed--by in-solution assays, such as immunoturbidimetry and immunonephelometry.
Initial evaluation of cystatin C measurement by particle-enhanced immunonephelometry on the Behring nephelometer systems (BNA, BN II).
