Laboratory confirmation of the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis

Laboratory confirmation of the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis

Clinical Chemistry 22(11): 1841-1844

The recent commercial introduction of a method for detecting albumin in meconium makes screening for cystic fibrosis feasible for many hospitals. If the tests is adopted, confirmatory tests should be available. Quantitative analyses of sweat for sodium by flame photometry and for chloride by silver titration and ion-sleective electrodes are now used as confirmatory tests. We compare results of these confirmatory methods applied to presons with cystic fibrosis, respiratory disorders, or digestive disorders, and to control subjects.
