The effect on creatinine kinase activity of freezing plasma from healthy foals.

Abstract

AIM To assess the stability of creatine kinase (CK) activity in plasma collected from healthy foals and frozen at -20 degrees C for up to 12 weeks. METHODS Samples of venous blood drawn from 25 foals were analysed for CK activity soon after collection, and again after 1 and 12 weeks of freezing at -20 degrees C. RESULTS CK activity decreased (p<0.001… (More)
