Re: Insulin Testing

CLIA is an immunoassay just like RIA but with a different indicator (light emission vs radioactivity).  CLIA is reported to give lower results than RIA . I don't know what assay Idexx uses (have asked but didn't get an answer). That paper is less than a year old so  maybe Cornell hasn't been investigated further yet; don't know but  I'll ask! They use a Millipore human RIA.
