Immunochromatographic measurement of phenobarbital in whole blood with a non-instrumented assay.

Abstract

We tested the precision and accuracy of the AccuLevel Phenobarbital Test, which reports whole-blood (fingerstick) results in plasma equivalent values, and compared these values with plasma results obtained using established methods. We conclude that the assay is precise, reliable, accurate for single tests, and is appropriate for use in offices, outpatient settings, and emergency rooms.
