In general, there was good correlation between the AxSYM Progesterone assay and all other methods tested (r [greater than or equal to]0.
In worst-case mixed load list modeling scenarios for throughput, the AxSYM Progesterone assay gave a throughput of 57 tests per hour.
In conclusion, our results show that the AxSYM Progesterone assay is sensitive, specific, and highly precise and gives results that correlate and agree well with those by a manual RIA method.
Single luteal phase serum progesterone assay as an indicator of ovulation.
DPC changed the antibody used in their progesterone assay during the course of this study.
The Immuno 1 progesterone assay has been compared with the old and new DPC progesterone assays by using 185 and 48 samples, respectively.
For the Immuno 1 progesterone assay, the minimum detectable concentration was estimated with 47 reaction rates of the SETpoint progesterone calibrator 1 at 0.
The Immuno 1 progesterone assay was also compared with the new DPC progesterone method (Fig.
The performance of the Immuno 1 progesterone assay is also better than other reported automated progesterone assays [27-31].
For the progesterone assay, the minimum detectable concentration is also equivalent to other commercial automated progesterone assays [27,28, 30, 31].
The results obtained from the Immuno 1 progesterone assay correlate well with those measured by both old and new DPC assays, although the results obtained from the Immuno 1 assay are higher than those obtained by the DPC methods (regression analysis slopes statistically different from 1.
