Inorganic Phosphorus (UV –method)(I516 – 480)
Number of Tests:
4 x 120 mL
2 – 8°C
2.5 – 4.8 mg/dL
It is recommended that each laboratory establish its own range of expected values
Do not use if: (1) Reagent without serum added has an absorbance greater than 0.500 at
340 nm; (2) The reagent fails to recover stated control values.
Limitations of Procedure:
Most commonly employed detergent and disposable wipes used in the laboratory
contain phosphates, and the use of improperly rinsed glassware may result in elevated
inorganic phosphorus values.
