Analytical performance

The performance of the commercially available HoloTC RIA was evaluated. Total imprecision was 10% or less. No inter-laboratory deviations were observed in the range 10 to 200 pmol/L.

The assay works well but has certain limitations:
Such as the time and technical skill needed to perform the assay, the use of radioactivity, and the large sample volume needed, which severely limits the possibility to re-test samples.

On the basis of these results the commercial partner intensified development of a more user-friendly non-isotopic method requiring less sample and adaptable to automatic clinical instruments. This assay, HoloTC AxSYM became available toward the end of the project.
