We thank Bernadine Jendrzejczak and Laura Hubbard (Children's Hospital of Wisconsin), Glenn Ehlers and Eloise Casto (Ortho Clinical Diagnostics), and Barbara Hill and Michelle Gozda (Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene) for performing direct bilirubin and total bilirubin assays, and the CAP for analyzing data and providing the Survey specimens.
5-h mean and greatest change were as follows: ALK (U/L), plasma (81 [+ or -]3), serum (85 [+ or -]3); ALT (U/L), serum (47 [+ or -]1); AST (U/L), plasma and serum (21 [+ or -]2); direct bilirubin (mg/L), plasma and serum (1.
Neither the amount of direct bilirubin measured in the patient samples nor the age of the patients affected the goodness or the slope of the correlation between total bilirubin concentrations measured on the Hitachi 917 and the ABL 735 (data not shown).
The following variables deviated from a gaussian distribution: [beta]-NAG, PIIIP, Mn-SOD, ferritin, Apo B, prothrombin activity, albumin, alkaline phosphatase, [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, LDL- and HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, total and direct bilirubin, AST, ALT, and [alpha]-fetoprotein.
The direct bilirubin assay measures the majority of [delta]-bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin and a variable but small percentage of unconjugated bilirubin (83-85).

With the Paramax RX analyzer (Dade International) and manufacturer-specified reagents, the HBOC-201 serum specimens were assayed for several analytes, including sodium, chloride, potassium, glucose, creatine kinase (CK), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), cholesterol, calcium, total protein, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), albumin, [gamma]-glutamyltransferase (GGT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), creatinine, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), amylase, magnesium, phosphorus in the form of phosphate ions, total bilirubin, and direct bilirubin.
Caution must be exercised when utilizing diazo methods because many diazo methods measure direct bilirubin even when it is not present [49].
The transaminase levels improved to normal values, while direct bilirubin was observed to be increased.
Before and after the treatment period of one week, complete blood count, prothrombin time, activated prothromboplastin time, serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase, total and direct bilirubin levels were measured.
Linear regression models were fitted for In-transformed values of alanine transaminase (ALT), [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, and direct bilirubin on PFOA, PFOS, and potential confounders, and logistic regression models were used to compare deciles of PFOA or PFOS in relation to high biomarker levels.
All it takes is a simple bike dynamo to operate the machine, which would yield the 23 medical results including glucose, urea, uric acid, heamoglobin, cholesterol, albumin, direct bilirubin, among others.
Plasma albumin, total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, creatinin, blood urea nitrogen, uric acid, glucose, total protein, and electrolyte parameters, including calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride, inorganic phosphate, and magnesium were measured by standard methods using an auto analyzer (Hitachi 7600-210; Hitachi, Tokyo, Japan).

The liver, despite the effects of alcohol and tumors, was still able to produce glucuronic acid, since the direct bilirubin was also increased as well as the urinary urobilinogen (shown on Table 1).
