In addition, urines containing large amounts of immunochemically nonreactive albumin were analyzed after multiple (six) freeze/thaw cycles.
Total urinary albumin (immunoreactive albumin plus immunochemically nonreactive albumin) was determined by analyzing urine samples using an Agilent 1100 HPLC system (Agilent Technologies) (2, 3).
Affinity-purified immunochemically nonreactive albumin was further purified to remove any remaining contaminants by chromatography on an Agilent 1100 HPLC system (see method described above).
The immunochemically nonreactive albumin preparation was also tested by ELISA for the presence of other common urinary proteins: IgG ([M.
For three diabetic urines containing relatively large quantities of immunochemically nonreactive albumin, the bands that migrated the same distance on the gel as the albumin calibrator were excised from the gel.

Some investigators [9-12] prefer to assess renin concentrations by mass measurement with immunochemical methods rather than measure renin activity, because the immunochemically determined concentration will not be influenced by physiological or pathological variations of the renin substrate, angiotensinogen [9, 10].
