  • Analytical Performance of a Single Epitope B-type Natriuretic Peptide
           Sandwich Immunoassay on the Minicare Platform for Point-of-Care

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 March 2019Source: Practical Laboratory MedicineAuthor(s): Alexander Van Reenen, Mario Berger, Emmanuel Moreau, Edwin Bekx, Tom Bruinink, Danielle Kemper, Lian Van lippen, Jos Weusten, Anita Mrakovic, Etienne Michielsen, Joost Vissers, Femke De Theije, Jeroen Nieuwenhuis, Veronique Semjonow, Johannes MairAbstractPoint-of-care B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) testing with adequate analytical performance has the potential to improve patient flow and provide primary care givers with easy-to-use advanced diagnostic tools in the management of heart failure. We present the analytical evaluation of the Minicare BNP immunoassay under development on the Minicare I-20 platform for point-of-care testing. Analytical performance was evaluated using EDTA venous whole blood, EDTA plasma and capillary whole blood. Method comparison with a lab-testing system was performed using samples from 187 patients. Normal values were determined based on 160 healthy adults, aging from 19 to 70 years. Limit of blank (LoB), limit of detection (LoD) were determined to be 3.3 ng/L, 5.8 ng/L. Limit of quantitation (LoQ) in whole blood at 20% and 10% coefficient of variation (CV) was found < 9 ng/L and < 30 ng/L respectively without significant differences between EDTA whole blood and EDTA plasma. Total CV was found to be from 6.7% to 9.7% for BNP concentrations between 92.6 and 3984 ng/L. The sample type comparison study demonstrated correlation coefficients between 0.97 and 0.99 with slopes between 1.03 and 1.09 between the different samples. Method comparison between Minicare BNP and Siemens ADVIA Centaur BNP demonstrated a correlation coefficient of 0.92 with a slope of 1.06. The 97.5% URL of a healthy population was calculated to be 72.6 ng/L. The Minicare BNP assay is a robust, easy-to-use and sensitive test for rapid determination of BNP concentrations that can be used in a near-patient setting.
  • Baseline urinary KIM-1 concentration in detecting acute kidney injury
           should be interpreted with patient pre-existing nephropathy

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 March 2019Source: Practical Laboratory MedicineAuthor(s): Yun Huang, Yuan Tian, Sergei Likhodii, Edward RandellAbstractObjectivesTo determine whether pre-existing nephropathy impacts urinary KIM-1 levels, urinary KIM-1 were measured in patients with normal kidney filtration function but either with or without proteinuria. The reference interval of urinary KIM-1 in adults with normal kidney filtration function but without urine proteinuria was established.Designand Methods. 188 urine samples were obtained from adults with normal kidney filtration. 83 of the 188 showed negative urine protein, erythrocytes and leucocytes were used as normal controls. The remaining 105 samples showed at least one abnormal result suggesting possible pre-existing nephropathy. Urinary KIM-1 concentrations were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Urinary KIM-1 was normalized with urine creatinine concentration. The reference interval for urinary KIM-1 was determined by non-parametric methodology on 147 individuals.ResultsThe results showed significantly increased urinary KIM-1 concentration in protein positive (protein +, erythrocyte +/-, leucocyte+/-) samples compared to controls (protein-, erythrocyte -, leucocyte -). Urinary KIM-1 concentrations were significantly higher when proteinuria was at trace concentration (0.25g/L) and correlated with the severity of proteinuria. The creatinine normalized urinary KIM-1 was significantly higher when urine protein was 1+ to 3+ (0.75 to 5g/L). The reference interval for urinary KIM-1 was 0.00 (90%CI: 0-0) to 4.19 (90%CI: 3.11-5.62) μg/L, and for creatinine normalized urinary KIM-1 0.00 (90%CI: 0-0) to 0.58 (90%CI: 0.44-0.74) μg/mmol.ConclusionsBaseline urinary KIM-1 concentrations were increased when there was detectable urine protein and correlated with its severity. The urinary KIM-1 concentrations should be interpreted with consideration of urine protein levels in individual patients.
  • Analytical evaluation of the Radiometer AQT90 FLEX βhCG assay

    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 14Author(s): Miranda M. Brun, Laura Holloway, Amanda Oleksy, Jan Dayton, Mathew P. Estey, Bobbi-Lynn Goudreau, Anna K. FüzéryAbstractObjectivesMany hospitals cannot afford an hCG assay on a central lab analyzer and turn to point of care testing (POCT) solutions. The Radiometer AQT90 FLEX is a small benchtop immunoareement between the AQT90 and comparator methods for samples with hCG ssay analyzer for use in the laboratory or at the patient bedside. This study evaluated the analytical performance of the AQT90's βhCG assay.MethodsPrecision was assessed using whole blood patient samples and two levels of quality control. Linearity was assessed by dilution of a high hCG plasma sample. Carryover and hook effect were assessed using high and low hCG samples. Method comparisons were done against Abbott i-STAT Total βhCG, Beckman Coulter Total βhCG (5th IS), and Roche hCG+β. Sample concentrations ranged from
  • Comparison of analytical performance of i-Smart 300 and pHOx ultra for the
           accurate determination of pleural fluid pH

    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 14Author(s): Jooyoung Cho, Young Sam Kim, Young Hwan Kim, Jae-Yeon Lee, In Cheol Bae, Sang-Guk Lee, Jeong-Ho KimAbstractBackgroundPleural fluid pH is an essential test for diagnosing complicated parapneumonic effusion. We evaluated the performance of two blood gas analyzers in measuring pleural fluid pH.MethodsThe i-STAT G3+ (Abbott) was used as a reference analyzer to evaluate the pH values obtained from other methods: the i-Smart 300 (i-SENS), the pHOx Ultra (Nova Biomedical), using a clot catcher to filter off microclot, and pH indicator paper. Within-device precision was performed using quality control materials. We compared pleural fluid pH (n = 86) by the above methods and analyzed the concordance rate at the level of the medical decision point, pH 7.2.ResultsThe within-device coefficient of variations of pH were below 0.1% for all blood gas analyzers tested. The slopes of the regression equations for the i-Smart 300, pHOx Ultra, and pH indicator paper against the reference analyzer were 0.850 (95% confidence interval, CI, 0.800–0.896), 0.714 (95% CI, 0.671–0.766), and 1.105 (95% CI, 0.781–1.581), respectively. The kappa values for the i-Smart 300, pHOx Ultra, and pH indicator paper against the reference analyzer were 0.883 (95% CI, 0.656–1.110), 0.739 (95% CI, 0.393–1.084), and 0.464 (95% CI, 0.102–0.826), respectively.ConclusionsThe i-Smart 300 and pHOx Ultra demonstrated good analytical performance and diagnostic accuracy when determining pleural fluid pH compared with that by the i-STAT G3+, whereas the pH indicator paper showed unsatisfactory results.
  • Establishing a blood fructosamine reference range for the Brazilian
           population based on data from ELSA – Brasil

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 13Author(s): William Pedrosa, Maria de Fátima Haueisen Sander Diniz, Sandhi Maria Barreto, Pedro Guatimosim VidigalAbstractObjectivesThe fructosamine test is used in the monitoring of diabetes mellitus, particularly in cases with restrictions on the use of glycated hemoglobin (mainly in the setting of altered red blood cell lifespan and interference by hemoglobin variants). It could also provide additional information on shorter-term glycemic control. The objective of the study is to establish the reference range of the fructosamine in the Brazilian population.Design and methodsThe reference interval was defined as suggested by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). The study participants were from a Brazilian cohort (The Longitudinal Study of Adult Health – ELSA-Brasil) with baseline data collected between 2008 and 2010. A total of 466 subjects were selected after exclusion of diabetic individuals, and those with altered glycemic markers and renal function tests.ResultsThe reference interval was 186–248 μmol/L for women and 196–269 μmol/L for men. Fructosamine levels were higher in men than in women (p = 0.006) and in the non-white population (p = 0.034) and had a negative correlation with the body mass index (r = −0.117; p = 0.011).ConclusionsThe reference intervals for fructosamine were affected by sex. Reference intervals stratified by sex would be more adequate in the interpretation of the fructosamine test.
  • Improved assay protocol for measurement of ammonia on the Roche Cobas 8000
           automated platform

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 13Author(s): J. Kaplon, J.J. de Groot, J.P. van Straalen, M. Heckman, J.C. FischerAbstractIntroductionAmmonia is a metabolite of protein catabolism that, when elevated, may be toxic for tissues, especially for the central nervous system. Elevated ammonia in blood is an indicator and a prognostic factor for hepatic and kidney disease or inherited metabolic disorders in nitrogen metabolism. The accuracy of ammonia determination is influenced by sampling condition, handling, storage and assay itself. Our and other laboratories have been experiencing high frequencies sample error flags while measuring ammonia with glutamate dehydrogenase method on Roche Cobas 8000 platform. To reduce the number of error flags we adapted Roche NH3L protocol by incorporation of an additional onboard routine step for sample pre-dilution.Material and methodsThe AMC NH3L is an adaptation of Roche protocol that uses four fold pre-dilution of the sample in the rerun prior to the analysis. It was assessed for 1.occurrence of absorbance error flags, 2.precision, 3.correlation with Roche method and 4.interference by hemolysis, icterus and lipemia.ResultsThe AMC NH3L adaptation demonstrates acceptable within-run and total precision. Comparison studies show no differences between the Roche rerun application and AMC NH3L adaptation. The AMC NH3L adaptation solves 78% of absorbance errors and for samples with high ammonia concentration is less affected by interferences from icterus and hemolysis than the Roche rerun application.ConclusionThe AMC NH3L adaptation is less prone to instrument error flags and for samples with high ammonia concentration, is more robust to endogenous interferences. The AMC NH3L adaptation is viable alternative to the Roche protocol for the ammonia measurement.

  • Sweat chloride quantification using capillary electrophoresis

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 13Author(s): Patricia Dubot, Jing Liang, Jacobé Dubs, Yohann Missiak, Cédric Sarazin, François Couderc, Elizabeth CausséAbstractBackgroundCystic fibrosis (CF) is the less rare and severe genetic disease among the European population. Biochemical diagnosis of CF is based on the demonstration of increased chloride concentration in sweat samples, obtained during the sweat test (ST). WynSep developed a capillary electrophoresis with contactless conductivity detection (CE-C4D) able to measure sweat chloride with a low sample volume. We evaluated the clinical feasibility of this device in a cohort of patients suspected of CF, in comparison with the common coulometric method (ChloroChek chloridometer).MethodsWe determined sweat chloride concentration of 65 samples from patients referred to our institution to undergo a sweat test. Each sample was submitted to coulometric method first, then WynSep-CE, with or without internal standard (IS) subject to sufficient volume sample.ResultsA total of 53 samples were analysed by both coulometric and WynSep-CE (using IS) methods. The method validation showed comparable analytical performances for both methods; no false positive or false negative was recorded. The two methods showed a high correlation (r = 0.993, p 
  • Biological function and molecular mechanism of piRNA in cancer

    • Abstract: Publication date: January 2019Source: Practical Laboratory Medicine, Volume 13Author(s): Ghanbar Mahmoodi Chalbatani, Hassan Dana, Feridon Memari, Elahe Gharagozlou, Shirin Ashjaei, Peyman Kheirandish, Vahid Marmari, Habibollah Mahmoudzadeh, Farnaz Mozayani, Ali Reza Maleki, Ehsan Sadeghian, Elham Zainali Nia, Seyed Rohollah Miri, Neda zainali Nia, Omid Rezaeian, Anahita Eskandary, Narges Razavi, Mohammad Shirkhoda, Fatemeh Nouri RouzbahaniAbstractCancer is the second leading cause of death globally. piRNAs, which are a novel type of identified small noncoding RNA (ncRNA), play a crucial role in cancer genomics. In recent years, a relatively large number of studies have demonstrated that several piRNA are aberrantly expressed in various kinds of cancers including gastric cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and Lung cancer and may probably serve as a novel therapeutic target and biomarker for cancer treatment. The present review summarized current advances in our knowledge of the roles of piRNAs in cancer.
