Biotin: Mechanisms of interference in immunoassays and mitigation strategies

By Editor on 1/20/2020

By Victor Leung, Dana Nyholt-Bailey, IQMH Endocrinology and Immunology Scientific Committee and Staff


Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of cases of biotin interference with streptavidin-biotin (SB)-based immunoassays reported in the literature. Biotin interference with laboratory tests, specifically SB-based immunoassays, is potentially dangerous, as it may cause spurious test results leading to misdiagnosis and patient mismanagement.

President's End of Year Message

By Editor on 12/19/2019

There are times it feels difficult to believe that the holiday season is almost upon us once again. This year seems to have gone by especially quickly! I guess the old adage about time appearing to pass by faster and faster the older you get is true—at least for me!  In any case, here we are, and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you peace, hope and joy during the holiday season, and throughout 2020.
