Cross reactivity of the EMIT digoxin assay with digoxin metabolites, and validation of the method for measurement of urinary digoxin



Cross reactivity of the EMIT digoxin assay with digoxin metabolites, and validation of the method for measurement of urinary digoxin



Clinical Chemistry 29(1): 175-177



In evaluating the EMIT (Syva Co.) digoxin assay, we found no cross reactivity between dihydrodigoxin, the major digoxin metabolite, and the EMIT digoxin antibody from two different lots. However, the antibody does cross react, essentially completely, with the digoxin hydrolysis metabolites digoxigenin, digoxigenin mono-digitoxide, and digoxigenin bis-digitoxide. The EMIT method can be used to measure digoxin in urine diluted at least 50- to 100-fold with digoxin-free human plasma; the inter-assay coefficient of variation of this assay is 6%. In addition, we validated the manual EMIT serum digoxin assay, using external ("TRI-rac") quality controls.
