Performance Characteristics for this SGPT ALT reagent assay kit:
1. Linearity: 120 IU/L.
2. Sensitivity: Based on an instrument resolution of 0.001absorbance, the present procedure has a sensitivity of 0. 5 IU/L.
3. Comparison: A comparison studies between the present method with a similar method yield a correlation coefficient of 0.97 and a regression equation of y = 0.99 x + 0.71.

Expected Values:
5 - 35 IU/L.

Interfering Substances when this SGPT ALT reagent assay kit:
 - Pyridoxal phosphate can elevate SGPT (ALT) values.
- High levels of serum pyruvate may also interfere with assay performance.
- Young et al. give a list of drugs and other substances that interfere with the determination of SGPT (ALT) activity.
