115The Ferritin assay is a paramagnetic particle, chemiluminescent immunoassay for the quantitative determination of ferritin levels in human serum.
Collect: Serum Separator Tube (SST) - 0.5 ml.
Specimen Preparation: Serum free from hemolysis is the recommended specimen. Allow blood samples to clot (15 mins). Separate the serum from the cells by centrifuging for 10 minutes. Store serum at 2-8°C until analysis.
Storage/Transport Temperature: Refrigerated.
Stability: Ferritin is stable in serum for 8 hours at room temperature; Refrigerated at 2-8 °C: 2 days; Frozan at -20°C for long term storage.
At Accu Reference: Refrigerated - 2 days: Frozen- 1 month
NOTE: * This test is approved for all states. *

Males: 23.9 – 336.2 ng/mL
Females: 11.0 – 306.8 ng/mL
Samples can be accurately measured within the analytic range of the lower limit of detection and the highest calibrator value (approximately 0.2-1500 ng/mL [μg/L]).
The analytic range for the Dil-Fer assay is 1300 up to approximately 15,000 ng/mL.
If a sample contains less than the lower limit of detection for the assay, report the results as less than that value (i.e., < 0.2 ng/mL [μg/L]).
