Performance Characteristics using this SGPT, ALT reagent assay reagent assay:
1. Linearity: 500 IU/L
2. Comparison: Studies between the present method and a similar method yield a correlation of 0.99 and a regression equation Y = 0.98X + 1.32.

Expected Values:
- Up to 26 IU/L (30 °C).
- Up to 38 IU/L (37 °C).

Interfering Substances when Alanine Aminotransferase reagent assay is used:
 - Pyridoxal phosphate can elevate ALT (SGPT) 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 ALT (SGPT) activity.
