Scientists used DOE to optimize a new assay for diagnosing rare kidney disease

January 23, 2020

A new diagnostic method for detecting a rare kidney stone disease has recently been developed at the University of Iceland. Instead of using urine microscopy, which has certain disadvantages, the diagnostic method is based on mass spectrometry of plasma samples. Preliminary clinical data shows very promising results both in terms of detecting the disease and therapeutic drug monitoring. Design of Experiments (DOE) was used as a chemometric approach to optimize the assay. Below is a summary of the assay development and optimization.
