Abstract

Some aspects of the measurement of alkaline phosphatase activity concentration in human serum, using N-methyl-D-glucamine as a buffer, were evaluated with a view to the possible routine use of the method. The evaluated characteristics included: the temperature-dependence of the pH of the buffer; the effect of adding the magnesium/zinc ions buffer; the effect of the serum volume fraction; the substrate-starter versus the serum-starter mode; the effect of modifying the formulation of reagents; the within-run and the between laboratory imprecision; the correlation with an alternative routine method. Also, sex- and age-related reference values were produced, based on 2968 values from selected reference sample groups in 7 laboratories. In general, the results demonstrate the robustness of the method, its adaptability to a variety of mechanized analysers, and hence its feasibility as a routine measurement method.
