We evaluated the Boehringer Mannheim (B.M.) Reflotron Total Cholesterol "dry-chemistry" method after its recalibration in 1987. Reports in the literature up to 1986-1987 of a negative bias (up to -10%) in the method prompted a revision of the factory-set calibration of the Reflotron. For this, B.M. prepared a new set of calibrators with 12 different concentrations of cholesterol. We checked in two ways whether accuracy had been achieved: (a) The values assigned to the calibrators by B.M. were… CONTINUE READING
