Evaluation of the new automated ELISA vidas Lp(a) assay: Comparison with an immunonephelemetric method

Evaluation of the new automated ELISA vidas Lp(a) assay: Comparison with an immunonephelemetric method

Clinica Chimica Acta 272(2): 183-195

Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] is a lipoprotein which has a plasma concentration that is highly correlated with cardiovascular disease. In this study, the new Lp(a) assay for the Vitek Immuno-Diagnostic Assay System (VIDAS) developed by bioMérieux was evaluated. This method uses an enzyme linked fluorescent immunoassay (ELFIA) technique. Within-run and between-run reproducibility of the Vidass Lp(a) assay are characterized by coefficients of variation (CV) of 3 to 5.9% and 3.9 to 5.9%, respectively. Using analysis of variance, no statistical difference was shown between ELFIA and immunonephelometric assay (INA). When comparing results of the Vidas Lp(a) test with the INA, a highly significant correlation of r = 0.9708 and regression line equation y = 0.963x-0.037 was found. Interference of lipemia was studied: no influence was observed up to 12.3 mmol l(-1) triglycerides. No interference of haemoglobin was noted for Lp(a) > 0.20 g l(-1). Hyperbilirubinemia ( > 120 micromol l(-1)) led to results being underestimated for concentrations of Lp(a) which were < 0.20 g l(-1). No pre-analytical interference of citrate was measured but pre-analytical interference of EDTA was found. In conclusion, this new fully automated immunofluorimetric Lp(a) assay enables to the rapid, accurate and reliable determination of Lp(a) in blood samples.
