Albumin standards and the measurement of serum albumin with bromcresol green.
Abstract A rapid and reliable method for measuring serum albumin employing bromcresol green is described. The addition of albumin to a solution of bromcresol green in a 0.075 M succinate buffer pHExpand

A candidate reference method for determination of total protein in serum. I. Development and validation.
We developed a candidate Reference Method for measuring total serum protein by use of the biuret reaction. The method involves a previously described biuret reagent (Clin. Chem. 21: 1159, 1975) andExpand

Candidate reference method for determination of total bilirubin in serum: development and validation.
This candidate Reference Method for measuring total bilirubin in serum is based on the Jendrassik-Gróf principle (Clin Chem 29: 297-301, 1983). Standard Reference Material no. 916 bilirubin (NationalExpand

Standardization in bilirubin assays: evaluation of selected methods and stability of bilirubin solutions.
Because of the inaccuracy of bilirubin (BIL) determinations, we have investigated some sources of error associated with the most commonly used methods. Inadequate standardization appears to be theExpand

Differences between values for plasma and serum in tests performed in the Ektachem 700 XR Analyzer, and evaluation of "plasma separator tubes (PST)".
We measured 25 analytes in plasma and serum from the same blood specimen, using the Kodak Ektachem 700 XR Analyzer. For 22 of the analytes, values for plasma were practically the same as those forExpand

Lactate dehydrogenase activities in serum and plasma.
We investigated lactate dehydrogenase activity in serum and plasma because of the conflicting data found in the literature. We assayed serum, platelet-rich, and platelet-poor plasma by twoExpand
