Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
Within 24 hours
New York DOH Approval Status
Serum separator tube.
Allow specimen to clot completely at room temperature. Separate serum or plasma from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1 mL serum or plasma to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.4 mL)
Heparinized plasma. I.V. fluid. Vitreous fluid. Gray (sodium fluoride/potassium oxalate). Hemolyzed specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 8 hours; Refrigerated: 1 week; Frozen: 1 month
120 minutes: 22-79 µIU/mL
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 by 6.0. The reference interval is based on a 75 g glucose challenge.
