OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of temperature and protease inhibitor on adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH) stability. METHODS We collected blood specimens from 10 donors into K3 EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) and K3 EDTA + aprotinin tubes. Plasma specimens were held at room temperature and at 2 °C to 8[Formula: see text] for 0, 2, 4, 8, 24, and 72… CONTINUE READING
