Of several preservatives we tested, a mixture of "isotonic" sodium fluoride and sodium iodoacetate (17.7 and 5.0 g/L, respectively) best inhibits glucose loss from blood collected from the newborn. However, the inhibition is incomplete. Twenty microliters of blood is diluted with 100 microliter of preserving solution. After centrifugation, the glucose in 100 microliter of prewarmed supernate (diluted plasma) is measured in a Beckman Glucose Analyzer, based on the action of a glucose reagent and… CONTINUE READING
