Mayo Study of TcB: TcB vs Vitros TsB

Slide 12

June 2009

This is a Bland-Altmann plot showing the difference between transcutaneous and Vitros serum bilirubin, on the y-axis, vs. the mean of transcutaneous and serum bilirubin on the x-axis.  Again the relationship between transcutaneous and serum bilirubin is relatively constant across the range of bilirubin values encountered, but the median bias is significantly less at 1.3 mg/dL.  We can see from this data that the particular laboratory bilirubin method used is a major determinant of the relationship between transcutaneous and serum bilirubin.
