Investigation into paediatric bilirubin analyses in Australia and New Zealand

, : Investigation into paediatric bilirubin analyses in Australia and New Zealand. Journal of Clinical Pathology 35(1): 52-58

A small regional survey of direct spectrophotometric methods and a larger Australian and New Zealand survey of pediatric bilirubin analyses are described. The overall performance of both groups was unsatisfactory with an unacceptable high interlaboratory variation. This interlaboratory variation was reduced significantly by the use of a spectrophotometric method with a common standard of methyl orange. The Australian and New Zealand survey also examined the state of the art for the measurement of conjugated bilirubin and showed that laboratories could not adequately measure conjugated bilirubin.

Supramolecular vesicles are triggered by the inclusion complex formed by CB[6] and surfactant. The combination of CB[6] with the surfactant plays a key role in the vesicle formation.
