Clinical Evaluation of an Investigational Blood Creatinine Point-of-Care Test Device
This study is being done to see if the Nova Creatinine Meter can give a correct measure of creatinine (a blood test used to measure kidney function) when the blood is taken from a capillary (smallest type of blood vessels). The Nova Creatinine Meter is a hand held device that can be used in a clinic to measure creatinine in about 50 seconds. Current laboratory creatinine testing can take up to an hour. Since chemotherapy patients need to have their creatinine measured prior to treatment, this meter could make testing easier and faster.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Tandem Mass Spectrometry
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

Hand-held tools or implements especially used by dental professionals for the performance of clinical tasks.
Glucose Tolerance Test
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
Serum Bactericidal Test
Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.
