We have evaluated a newly introduced immunoturbidimetric transferrin receptor assay (IdeA TfR-IT, Orion Diagnostica, Finland) in healthy subjects and in a study population consisting of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile chronic arthritis. The IdeA TfR-IT assay was found to provide reproducible results which were in good agreement with the ELISA assays from Orion Diagnostica (IDeA-ELISA, correlation R2=0.8, n=102) and R&D systems (Quantikine TfR ELISA assay, correlation R2=0.95, n… CONTINUE READING
