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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
