2000) Total iron-binding capacity and serum transferrin determination under the influence of several clinical conditions.
Direct serum total iron-binding capacity assay suitable for automated analyzers.
Serum iron and total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) were measured with a LISA 500 Plus automated chemical analyzer (Hycell Diagnostics, Paris, France).
Total iron-binding capacity was calculated as the sum of serum concentration of iron and unsaturated iron-binding capacity.
Screening tests for hemochromatosis include measurement of serum iron, total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), and transferrin saturation.
The average serum iron, total iron-binding capacity, and serum ferritin levels for the total study group were 19.
Serum ferritin was measured with the Bio-Rad Quantlmune Ferritin IRMA[TM] (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Hercules, California); transferrin saturation was calculated from serum iron and total iron-binding capacity, which were measured by a modification of the automated AAII-25 colorimetric method; and free erythrocyte protoporphyrin was measured by a modification of the Sassa method (7).
Serum iron values should always be interpreted with total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) and transferrin saturation
18] There is a strong correlation between the value of total iron-binding capacity and level of serum transferring [24] The increased demands of iron during pregnancy leads to increased total iron-binding capacity, and, accordingly, serum transferrin level also rises.
If diagnosis of anaemia was noticed, further evaluations including the measurements of serum iron, Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC) and ferritin were performed.
They also controlled these associations for the surrogates of the malnutrition-inflammation complex syndrome (MICS), including serum albumin, hemoglobin, normalized protein catabolic rate, phosphorus, total iron-binding capacity, ferritin, calcium, and creatinine.
The level of serum iron was 8 ng/dL (normal range 25-170 ng/dL), and total iron-binding capacity was 498 ng/dL (normal range 200-450 ng/dL).
