Evaluation of a new pretreatment reagent for use with the EMIT 2000 cyclosporine assay



Evaluation of a new pretreatment reagent for use with the EMIT 2000 cyclosporine assay



Clinical Biochemistry 36(4): 313-316



Evaluate the performance of the new pretreatment (NPT) reagent for use with the EMIT cyclosporine A (CsA) assay. Samples from transplant patients receiving CsA were tested using a COBAS MIRA S. A downward shift in target values for commercial controls was observed using the NPT reagent. There was excellent correlation for patient results when comparing the NPT reagent with methanol pretreatment. The NPT reagent is an acceptable substitute for methanol in the EMIT(R) extraction procedure for CsA.
