Efficacy of different methods in screening for iron deficiency was re-examined in a randomly selected sample of 38-year-old women (n=203) with known iron status based on absence/presence of stainable iron in bone-marrow smears.
The study was made in 1968-69.
Serum ferritin (SF) was determined in 1978 in frozen sera using the Ramco IRMA and, in 1992, samples were re-analysed using a RIA calibrated with the Insternational Standard 80/602 for SF determination.
The effect of storage on SF was calculated from a previously established relationship (courtesy of Dr Mark Worwood, Cardiff) between the results obtained with the Ramco assay and assays calibrated with IS 80/602.
