The main source of error in the determination of bilirubin in serum by the diazo reaction has been the loss caused by adsorption on the protein precipitate. In addition, the lack of an accurately matching artificial standard and the sensitivity of the azobilirubin color to changes in pH have made accurate calorimetric determinations impossible, without the aid of some type of objective photometer such as the spectrophotometer, the Pulfrich photometer, or the photoelectric calorimeter (14).

Determination of serum bilirubin by the diazo method using the diazotized 3-nitroaniline reacting readily with the photoproducts of bilirubin
Summaru We studied the diazo reaction of the water-soluble photoproducts of bilirubin using nine kinds of diazonium salts to select the diazonium salt most suitable for the determination of serumExpand

TLDR
The most widely used methods for the assay of total bilirubin in serum are based on a coupling reaction with various diazo dyes in the presence of an accelerating agent, but more sophisticated HPLC or dry-slide techniques are required for the specific assay of the various conjugated and protein-bound species of bilirubs in serum.

Studies on the determination of bile pigments. II. Spectrophotometric determination of bilirubin and hemoglobin in serum.
TLDR
It was concluded that direct and indirect bilirubin have essentially the same absorptivities at the wavelengths employed in the spectrophotometric formulae and this would appear to constitute strong evidence for identical absorption curves for the two types of bilirube in serum. Expand
Mechanism of interference by hemoglobin in the determination of total bilirubin. I. Method of Malloy-Evelyn.
TLDR
Addition of potassium iodide, 4.0 mmol/L final concentration in the reaction mixture, eliminates interference from hemoglobin added to give concentrations as great as 10 g/L and eliminated the effects of hemolysis in the method of Ertingshausen et al. Expand

TLDR
A quantitative method for their determination has been developed so that a study of the clinical significance of the amounts of pigment I and pigment II can be made. Expand

TLDR
The determination of the free bilirUBin offers a more precise means of selecting infants at risk to bilirubin encephalopathy. Expand
Blanking and the determination of cholesterol
TLDR
The present report indicates that the results obtained from the use of a serum blank in the one procedure are measured incorrectly owing in part to spectral shifts; that the measurement would be more correct if an isosbestic wavelength were used. Expand
A spectrophotometric study on the interaction of hemoglobin in a diazo coupling reaction of neonatal bilirubin
Abstract The foregoing experiments have shown some of the difficulties in establishing a mechanism of action for hemoglobin in diazo coupling reactions for bilirubin. All attempts to understand theExpand
A multi-component spectrophotometric method for simultaneous determination of total bilirubin, oxyhemoglobin, and methemalbumin in human sera
A new multi-component spectrophotometric method was developed experimentally and theoretically to determine the accurate serum concentrations of the total bilirubin (TB), oxyhemoglobin (HbO2), andExpand
Effects of bilirubin configurational photoisomers on the measurement of direct bilirubin by the vanadate oxidation method
TLDR
Applying the vanadate chemical oxidation method affected approximately 19% of the bilirubin configurational isomer concentration for direct bilirubsin, which is the most critical factor in the development of unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. Expand
