OBJECTIVE To compare 4 techniques for determination of total protein concentrations in peritoneal and pleural effusions from dogs. SAMPLE POPULATION 23 peritoneal and 12 pleural fluid samples from 35 dogs with various abnormalities. PROCEDURE Samples were collected into tubes containing EDTA, centrifuged, and stored at -20 C until total protein concentrations were assessed. Protein concentration in each sample was determined by use of urine test strips, refractometry, and Bradford and… CONTINUE READING
