Urine Albumin Standardization

To begin addressing urine albumin measurement and reporting issues, NKDEP and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine convened a group of international experts in March 2007. They began framing the issues associated with the urine albumin/creatinine ratio measurement and developing a plan to improve harmonization and standardization of the test. Learn more about the NKDEP Laboratory Working Group and read recent meeting minutes.

NKDEP, IFCC, and meeting participants are currently working to address agreed upon priorities. They also have written a manuscript outlining the issues and a proposed research agenda. NKDEP Lab News provides laboratory professionals with the latest in clinical chemistry news, as well as updates on the NKDEP Laboratory Working Group and its efforts. Subscribe now.
