We adapted a method for dialyzable calcium from fluorometric detection by use of calcein to a more specific spectrophotometric determination with cresolphthalein complexone. The reagents are available commercially and perform satisfactorily with respect to noise level, drift, stability, and sensitivity....

The reasons for the non-linearity of the standard curve for the calcium-cresolphthalein complexone reaction have been investigated. Calcium forms both 1:1 and 2:1 complexes with cresolphthalein complexone; at low calcium concentrations the 1:1 complex predominates and causes non-linearity. At high...

Severe hypocalcemia may require prompt intervention to avoid life-threatening consequences. We report a case in which a 78-year-old man had a critically low serum calcium level measured with use of standard colorimetric assay after gadodiamide administration during magnetic resonance angiography....
