Creatinine (Cr) is a representative biomarker reflecting renal function. In this study, we compared serum Cr levels using Roche Modular D (Roche Diagnostics, Germany), Roche Cobas 8000 c702 (Roche Diagnostics), and AU5800 (Beckman Coulter, USA). In addition, we assessed the differences in Cr measurements using the Jaffe and enzymatic methods.
Precision, linearity, and methods were evaluated in accordance with CLSI guidelines. Serum Cr was measured by Modular D following the Jaffe method, and serum Cr was measured by Cobas 8000 c702 and AU5800, following the Jaffe and enzyme methods.
All of the total coefficients of variations (CVs) were below 5%. Linearity was observed in the performance ranges evaluated (r>0.99, slope: 0.965 and 0.955). When Modular D and Cobas 8000c 702 were compared, the slope and y-intercept were 0.9928 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.9802 to 1.000) and -0.0156 (95% CI: −0.0200 to −0.0054), respectively. The slope and y-intercept were 0.9811 (95% CI: 0.9570 to 0.9951) and -0.0484 (95% CI: −0.0638 to −0.0297) when Modular D and Au5800 were compared. Serum Cr measured by Cobas 8000 c702 and AU5800 using the Jaffe method were 3.2% and 6.9% lower than the values measured by Modular D, respectively. Both Modular D and Cobas 8000 c702 showed acceptable accuracies.
Serum Cr measurements using Cobas 8000 c702 and AU5800 were comparable to those measured by Modular D, and showed satisfactory precision and linearity; thus, these techniques could be useful for clinical laboratories.
