Hemoglobin by first derivative spectrophotometry: extent of hemolysis in plasma and serum collected in vacuum container devices.


Commonly obtained clear plasma or serum samples contain small amounts of hemoglobin derived from either naturally occurring processes or from collection trauma. Using the recently evaluated, highly specific, sensitive, quantitative procedure of first derivative spectroscopy, the hemoglobin concentration in nine types of vacuum collection containers was… (More)
