Aids in the detection of insulinoma. Do not use to diagnose diabetes mellitus.
Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
This test is New York DOH approved.
This test reacts on a nearly equimolar basis with the analogs insulin aspart, insulin glargine, and insulin lispro. Insulin detemir exhibits approximately 50 percent cross-reactivity. Test reactivity with insulin glulisine is negligible (< 3 percent). To convert to pmol/L, multiply µIU/mL by 6.0. The reference interval for a fasting insulin is 3-19 µIU/mL.
