INTENDED USE
The K-ASSAY ®   Transferrin assay is intended for the quantitative determination of human transferrin in human serum by immunoturbidimetric assay.
FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC USE.

REAGENT PREPARATION
The reagents are ready to use and do not require reconstitution.

STORAGE AND HANDLING
All reagents should be stored refrigerated (2-8°C).  Return all reagents to 2-8°C promptly after use.  Unopened reagents can be used for one year from the date of manufacture, as indicated by the expiration date on the package and bottle labels.  Opened reagents can be used for one month if stored at 2-8°C.

PERFORMANCE
Precision
The precision for the K-ASSAY ®   Transferrin assay was determined using packaged reagents, pooled human serum, and a Hitachi 717 analyzer.

Precision - Within Run
Sample I Sample II Sample III
N = 20 N = 20 N = 20
Mean = 70.7 Mean = 300.75 Mean = 526.4
S.D. = 0.92 S.D. = 5.02 S.D. = 5.77
C.V. = 1.3% C.V. = 1.67% C.V. = 1.097%

Precision - Between Runs
Sample I Sample II
N = 8 N = 8
Mean = 175.38 Mean = 340.9
S.D. = 1.6 S.D. = 1.46
C.V. = 0.91% C.V. = 0.4%

Accuracy / Correlation
A comparison of the K-ASSAY ®   Transferrin assay to an Incstar Transferrin Test Kit was performed using a Hitachi 717.  The test results provided the following data:

y = 1.064x - 50.124
r = 0.982
n = 60
x = Incstar Transferrin Test Kit
y = K-ASSAY ®   Transferrin

x min = 148 y min = 110
  max = 440   max = 426
  mean = 246   mean = 212
