The present paper describes the multicenter evaluation of the CEDIA Cortisol test for total cortisol. The observed linearity of the test was between 1.2 and 50 micrograms/dL cortisol. The limit of detection was calculated as 1.2/dL. Imprecision studies covering the diagnostically relevant range (5-20 micrograms/dL cortisol) yielded coefficients of variation between 1.7-8.9% (within-run) and 2.7-10.5% (between-day). An interlaboratory survey using 41 human samples and three control sera…
