Integrate specific protein testing into your routine
The testing of specific proteins continues to be one of the key routines in laboratories due to their wide-ranging clinical utility. In the past, specific proteins were analyzed using a variety of specialized methods, such as radial immunodiffusion, immunoelectrophoresis or using dedicated nephelometers. This incremental investment and the resulting additional costs, handling complexity and reductions in throughput were accepted due to the perceived benefits in performance offered by these methods.
Today, specific protein determinations are frequently carried out on consolidated, random-access clinical chemistry systems using turbidimetric technology. Routine efficiencies such as reduced turnaround times are thereby achieved for these parameters.
