This test is also performed in the Iowa River Landing (IRL) clinical laboratory (for specimens drawn at that site).
Criterion: Recovery within plus or minus 10% of initial values at a lipase activity of 50 U/L. Icterus: No significant interference up to an I index of 50 (approximate conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin concentration: 50 mg/dL). Hemolysis: No significant interference up to an H index of 1000 (approximate hemoglobin concentration: 1000 mg/dL). Lipemia (Intralipid): No significant interference up to an L index of 2000 (approximate triglycerides concentration: 4000 mg/dL). There is poor correlation between turbidity and triglycerides concentration. References: Glick MR, Ryder KW, Jackson SA. Graphical Comparisons of Interferences in Clinical Chemistry Instrumentation.
