INTENDED USE
For the quantitative determination of Krebs von den Lungen-6 in human serum and plasma by immunoturbidimteric assay.
FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY IN THE U.S.
NOT FOR USE IN DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES IN THE U.S.

REAGENT PREPARATION
The reagents are ready to use.  They do not need to be reconstituted.

STORAGE AND HANDLING
All reagents should be stored refrigerated (2-8°C).  Return all reagents to 2-8°C promptly after use.  Unopened reagents can be used for 18 months from the date of manufacture, as indicated by the expiration date on the package and bottle labels.  Opened reagents can be used until the expiration date if they are kept tightly capped and at 2-8°C when not in use.

PERFORMANCE
Precision
With-run (Intra-assay) CV is less than 10% (n=5).

Accuracy / Correlation
A comparison of the K-ASSAY ®   KL-6 assay and another company's KL-6 latex-enchanced immunoturbidimetric assay was performed with the following results:

y = 1.065x - 2.3
r = 0.990
n = 122
x = another company's latex-enhanced turbidimetric KL-6 assay
y = K-ASSAY ®   KL-6 assay

An additional comparison with another company's KL-6 ECLIA (Electro Chemiluminesence Immuno-Assay) was performed with the following results:

y = 0.973x - 172.6
r = 0.957
n = 73
x = another company's ECLIA KL-6 assay
y = K-ASSAY ®   KL-6 assay

Assay Range
