Calibration and precision of serum creatinine and plasma cystatin C measurement: impact on the estimation of glomerular filtration rate.

Serum creatinine (SCr) is the main variable for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Due to inter-assay differences, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) varies according to the assay used, and calibration standardization is necessary. For SCr, isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS) is the gold standard. Systematic differences are… (More)
