Plasma Hemoglobin, Plasma
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Plasma is examined spectrophotometrically at 8 wavelengths ranging from 415 nm to 700 nm, and calculations are made that permit quantitation of total heme pigments, oxyhemoglobin, total bilirubin, and methemalbumin, comprising all the frequently encountered plasma pigments.(Fairbanks VF, Ziesmer S, O'Brien PC: Methods for measuring plasma hemoglobin in micromolar concentration compared. Clin Chem 1992;38:132-140)
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.
