We report the performance characteristics of an assay for determination of bone alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity after immunoadsorption in microplate wells. Between-run imprecision was between 7.1% and 11.2%. The detection limit was 1.0 U/L. Comparisons with an immunoradiometric test for determination of bone ALP mass concentrations yielded the following(More)
