ASSURANCE™ Interference Test Kit by Sun Diagnostics has been specifically designed with manufacturers and laboratories in mind.
ASSURANCE™ will aide manufacturers in determining assay interference and assist laboratories in verifying manufacturer’s claims for the most common interfering substances.
Human-source materials and purified chemicals are used to prepare concentrated interferents that are ready to be spiked into your specific matrix.

Interferents are available individually, in customer-defined configurations, or, as INT-01. INT-01 includes one vial of each of the most common interferents.
- Care should be used when evaluating assays for interference using native, human-sourced materials:
- Triglyceride-rich lipoprotein (TRL) material contains sucrose and sodium chloride, which may affect glucose and electrolyte assays; use appropriate control solution.
- Human albumin may bind cations (such as calcium, sodium, potassium, or magnesium), iron, thyroxine, fatty acids, bilirubin, and homocysteine.
- Drug and drug metabolites may bind to albumin, gamma-globulins, and lipoproteins.
- Typical concentrations are intended as a guide only. Laboratory should determine actual values before proceeding with interference experiment(s).
- INT-01 should not be used past the expiration date listed on the kit box. Refer to Interferent vials for expiration of individually purchased components or custom kit configurations.
- If there is evidence of microbial contamination discard the vial.
- This product is not intended for use as a control, standard or calibrator.
- Information gathered from experiments performed using ASSURANCE™ Interference Test Kit should not be used to adjust patient results. Confirm results with an alternate method when necessary.
