Reagents, Immunoassay, Control, Thyroid Hormone
Definition : Reagents consisting of substances of known concentrations that are assayed by the usual clinical laboratory methods and that resemble the unknown specimen; they are used for quality control of immunoassay tests performed for the determination of one or more of the group of hormones secreted by the thyroid gland, such as thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These reagents may be either specific for quality control of a thyroid hormone or, more frequently, appropriate for control of a whole set of similar thyroid hormones.
