Catalytic concentration of human creatine kinase-2 (CK-MB) determined with IFCC method at 37 degrees Celcius
The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) and the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) have certified a reference material (CRM) under the name and number IRMM/IFCC-455. This report describes the certification of the catalytic concentration of creatine kinase-2 (CK-MB) in a purified lyophilized material of human origin measured by the IFCC recommended method at 37 degrees Celcius. The catalytic concentration of CK-MB in reconstituted material was certified to 101 +/- 4 U/L or 1.68 +/- 0.07 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 can be used as a reference material for manufacturers of reagents and diagnostic kits.
