Abstract

BACKGROUND: The European Biological Variation Study (EuBIVAS) was established to deliver rigorously determined data for biological variation (BV). Here, EuBIVAS-based BV estimates are provided for alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein, alpha(1)-antitrypsin, albumin, beta(2)-microglobulin, ceruloplasmin, complement component 3, complement component 4, C-reactive protein (CRP), cystatin C, haptoglobin, IgA, IgG, IgM, soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR), and transferrin (Trf), together with their associated analytical performance specifications (APSs) and reference change values (RCVs).
