Abstract

Seven hundred and eighty six apparently healthy males (418) and females (368) aged 0-69 years were randomly selected for estimation of reference ranges of 24 serum analytes at the clinical chemistry laboratory of The Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH). Of the total study samples, 56% (439/786) were in the paediatric age group (0-14 years) and 44% (347/786) in the adult (15 > or = 60 years) group. Beckman Astra Ideal Autoanalyzer was used for all the estimations. Mean and standard deviations (SD) were calculated for each of the age groups. Reference ranges were calculated following standard methods of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) and International Committee for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH).
