Serum exchange and use of dilutions have improved precision of measurement of islet cell antibodies.

Abstract:

In an attempt to improve the diagnostic value of measuring antibodies to islet cell cytoplasmic antigen, coded sera were distributed to 38 laboratories and results were returned for analysis. Comparison between laboratories revealed that results for some individual sera differed by up to nine doubling dilutions and even within laboratories duplicate samples could differ by six doubling dilutions. By including dilutions of sera it was possible to draw a standard curve for each laboratory and t...
