The determination of serum and urinary free cortisol by competitive protein binding and radioimmunoassay were compared on patient samples using two commercially available kits. In addition, the Beckman RIA kit reagents were examined for precision and accuracy through the performance of reproducibility, recovery, cross reactivity and parallelism studies on(More)
We describe a highly specific RIA for blood and urine 6-keto-PGF1 alpha, the principal metabolite of PGI2. The method requires extraction and column chromatography prior to assay and uses a tritium trace for assay monitoring. Dextran-coated charcoal is used to separate bound from free trace. Acceptable standard curve reproducibility over six assays had a(More)
Two commercially available radioimmunoassay kits for aldosterone determination not requiring preliminary chromatographic purification were examined. Aldosterone standard curve solutions prepared from the CIS kit, Nuclear International Corp., (x-axis) and Diagnostic Products kit (y-axis) were assayed with both kits and the results yielded a regression(More)
We describe a radioimmunoassay for 11-deoxycortisol (Compound S) that involves preliminary chromatography on Sephadex LH-20, to isolate 11-deoxycortisol from crossreacting structurally related steroids. Pools with means of 3.4, 12.9, and 69.9 micrograms/L gave intra-assay coefficients of variation of 9.7, 9.6, and 11.4%, respectively; pools with means of(More)
We evaluated the Abbott Bichromatic Analyzer-100 (ABA-100) for use in the routine clinical chemistry laboratory by examining 13 different determinations that can be performed on the instrument. Results with the Du Pont "aca" and Technicon continuous-flow systems were compared to the ABA-100 in terms of upper limits of linearity, inter-run coefficient of(More)
