The interferences of o-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin (Hemolink) were examined and compared in two serum creatinine methods on the Hitachi 717 [Boehringer Mannheim (BMC) and Synermed] and in an enzymatic creatinine method on the Vitros 750 (Johnson & Johnson). Interference was considered significant when the change in creatinine concentration from the(More)
Cholesterol oxidase (ChOx) has been covalently immobilized onto polyaniline-carboxymethyl cellulose (PANI-CMC) nanocomposite film deposited onto indium-tin-oxide (ITO) coated glass plate using glutaraldehyde as a cross-linker. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic and electrochemical studies have been used to characterize the PANI-CMC/ITO(More)
