```RF TURBILATEX
INTENDED USE:
The reagent kit is intended for the” invitro” quantitative determination of
Rheumatoid factor in human serum.
PROCEDURE:
CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE:
Calibration Curve : (Range from 20 to 160 IU/ml) Prepare the
following RF calibrator dilutions in normal saline. Multiply the
concentration of the RF-calibrator by the corresponding factor stated in
table bellow to obtain the RF concentration of each dilution.
Rheumatoid factors are a group of antibodies directed to determinants in
the Fc portion of the immunoglobulin G molecule. Although rheumatoid
factors are found in a number of rheumatoid disorders, such as systemic
lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Siogren's syndrome as well as in nonrheumatic conditions, its central role in clinic lies in its utility as an aid in the
diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
.A study of the &quot;American College of Rheumatology&quot; show that the 80.4%
of RA patient were RF positive.
PRINCIPLE:
The RF - Turbilatex is a quantitative turbidimetric test for the measurement
of RF in human serum or Plasma.Latex particles coated with human
gamma globulin are agglutinated w hen mixed with samples containing
RF. The agglutination causes an absorbance change, dependent upon
the RF contents of sample that can be quantified by comparison from
calibrator of a known RF concentration.

One point calibration : (Linear range up to 100 IU/ml)
Prepare RF calibrator dilution : 30 &micro;l RFcalibrator + 70 &micro;l normal
saline. Multiply the RF calibrator concentration by 0.30 to
obtain the RF concentration of the diluted calibrator.
CALCULATION OF RESULTS:
Calibration curve (Note 1) : Calculate the absorbance difference
(A2-Ablankreagent) of each point of the calibration curve and plot the value
obtained against the RF concentration of each calibrator dilution.
Rheumatoid factorconcentration in the sample is calculated by interpolation
of its (A2-A blank reagent )in the calibration curve.

MATERIALS REQUIRED BUT NOT PROVIDED:
- Clean &amp; Dry Glassware.
- Laboratory Glass Pipettes or Micropipettes &amp; Tips.
- Bio-Chemistry Analyzer.

LINEARITY:
The reaction is linear up to 160 IU/ml.
PAERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTS:
1. Linearity Limit : Up to 160 IU/ml by multi-standard &amp; 100 IU/ml by one
point calibration.
2. Detection Limit : Values less than 6 IU/ml give non-reproducible results.
3. Prozone Effect : No prozone effect was detected up to 800 IU/ml.
QUALITY CONTROL:
It is recommended that each laboratory should prepare their own quality
control scheme.
LIMITATIONS AND PRECAUTIONS:
- Storage conditions mentioned on the kit to be adhered.
- Bilirubin (20mg/dl) Haemoglobin (10 g/L), Lipemia (10 g/L)do not terfere.
Other substances may interfere.
