Glomerular filtration rate estimates based on serum creatinine level in healthy people: conventional Jaffe method versus calibrated Jaffe method at laboratories in Rasht.


Conventional Jaffe method of serum creatinine measurement is influenced by several drugs and components of blood as well as the expertise of laboratory staffs. We obtained blood samples of 22 healthy volunteers and sent them to 23 laboratories in Rasht, Iran, in which the conventional Jaffe method would be used for serum creatinine measurement.
