Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Patient sample is deposited on the slide and is evenly distributed by the spreading layer. Protein in the sample forms a complex with cupric ion and results in the dissociation of the cupric ion from the copper-azo dye complex. The decrease of the copper-azo dye complex is measured by the reflectance spectrophotometry and is proportional to the concentration of proteins in the sample.

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
