Abstract:Preanalytical stability was lower for [-2]pro-PSA than for free PSA or tPSA. Whole-blood [-2]pro-PSA increased in a time-dependent manner, particularly at RT. Thus, whole blood samples collected at RT should be centrifuged within 1 hr after drawing. The [-2]pro-PSA in serum is stable for at least 24 hr at both RT and at 4°C.
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.
