The use of spectral and temporal resolution restricted the maximum background signal of the current dry assay to <1000 counts, which is comparable to many ordinary time-resolved immunofluorometric assays.
The dry assay has a reliable working range from 10 to ~320 mg/L, which covers the crucial region (15-40 mg/L) usually used as cutoff limits to distinguish normoalbuminuria and microalbuminuria (35).
