n Medical Technology SA - A spectrophotometric method for serum lithium assays compared to existing methods

Volume 19, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1011-5528



Lithium assays are carried out essentially to ensure patient compliance and to avoid toxicity. All existing methods employ sophisticated instruments which are not readily available in especially smaller laboratories. This spectrophotometric method for lithium assays utilizes a stable liquid reagent which can be used manually on a basic spectrophotometer or it can also be adapted for automated clinical analyzers. <br>Due to the demand and urgency of our lithium requests we have decided to research a method which can be used routinely, give rapid results and be easily adapted onto our existing chemical analyzer.
