Abstract: Background:The Roche Elecsys Vitamin D Total competitive protein-binding assay uses recombinant vitamin D binding protein for measuring 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD), which is different from commonly used antibody assays. Methods: The assay, standardized against LC-MS/MS, was tested at four sites. Evaluation included precision; between-laboratory variability; functional sensitivity; correlation to LC-MS/MS, HPLC, and immunoassays; as well as robustness, traceability, and EQAS performance. Results: Precision te…
