Abstract

A method is described for the production of serum ultrafiltrates through a cellophane membrane under controlled conditions of temperature and pH. The method has been tested for reproducibility and the conditions affecting the ultrafiltration of calcium examined. The relationship between ultrafiltrable and total serum calcium has been studied and the ultrafiltrable fractions of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus determined in the serum of normal human subjects. A potentiometric method for the measurement of ionised calcium in serum ultrafiltrate is also described using a specific divalent cation electrode, and the values obtained in normal human subjects reported.
