[en] We evaluated the analytical and clinical performances of a new radial partition immunoassay for measuring the mass concentration of creatine kinase (CK)-MB in serum. All pipetting, washes, incubations and data reduction were performed in 8 min by the Stratus (Dade) fluorometric analyzer. Within-assay and between-assay CVs were respectively 5.5% and 8.4% at 21 micrograms/L, and 4.2% and 3.4% at 48 micrograms/L. Assaying serial dilutions of serum samples with high CK-MB concentrations demonstrated excellent linearity. Results of the Stratus technique correlated well (n = 115, r = 0.98) with those of the Tandem-E CKMB II assay. There was no interference from hemolysis, bilirubin, rheumatoid factor, or added CK-MM (up to 3500 U/L); consequently, CK-MB can be determined in undiluted serum, even in the presence of high total CK activity. The mean CK-MB concentration in 105 blood donors was 1.9 (SD 1.3) micrograms/L. For seven myocardial infarction patients who received prompt fibrinolytic therapy, the mean CK-MB concentration was 4.5 (SD 1.8) micrograms/L at admission, and maximum concentrations, 119 (SD 94) micrograms/L, were recorded 16 h later. CK-MB returned to concentrations less than 10 micrograms/L within 72 h.
