Description:

The creatinine concentration determined by the Jaffe reaction (alkaline picrate method) may be affected by a number of compounds such as protein that form chromogenic compounds. Use of a single value to compensate for this interference can result in significant error if the albumin is very high or low. Parry developed an equation that can accurately determine what compensation to use.
