Catalytic concentration of gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) determined by IFCC method at 37 degrees Celcius
The institute for Reference Materials and Measurements and the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) characterized and certified a reference material under the name and number IRMM/IFCC-452. This report describes the certification of the catalytic concentration of gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) in a purified lyophilized material of porcine origin (kidney) in a bovine serum albumine matrix when measured by the IFCC recommended method at 37 degrees Celsius. The catalytic concentration of GGT in reconstituted material is certified to 114.2+/- 2.4 U/L or 1.90+/- 0.04 Ákat/L. It is the intention that the reference material should be used to control and optimize the performance of enzyme measurements, verify the comparability of results from different laboratories and be used as a reference material for manufacturers of reagents and diagnostic kits.
