Abstract

Reaction rate studies were carried out on various quality control specimens using a ferrozine iron determination kit. The time required for complete color formation differed among the various materials tested. Quality control materials of bovine origin required a much longer incubation time for full color formation. Using a fixed incubation procedure, the bovine controls would give a falsely low result. The present study suggests that caution is indicated when quality control data using bovine materials are interpreted.
