Limitations of immunochemical measurement of ceruloplasmin

Clin Chem. 1979 May;25(5):749-51.


We describe a quantitative immunochemical method for the nephelometric measurement of ceruloplasmin. Results are compared with those from a radial immunodiffusion technique. We examine factors affecting the results, such as antiserum source and calibrators, and list reference limits for a pediatric population.
