karbala journal of pharmaceutical sciences, Volume 4, Issue 4, Pages 111-118

In this study ,serum albumin level was determined in 61 blood samples using three different methods ,cellulose acetate electrophoresis (CAE), salt fractionation and bromocresolgreen(BCG) . The values of serum albumin (mean (95% confidence interval)) measured in gm/L by the above methods were 38.95 (1.64) , 38.13 (1.76) and 38.11 (1.8) respectively .There were no significant differences in the level of serum albumin determined by these methods (P≥0.05). Also, these methods showed statistically significant differences in the level of serum albumin determined by these methods (P≤ 0.001) ,As the BCG method give a relatively inaccurate albumin levels in abnormal sera therefore ,it is recommended that the BCG is to be used only as a screening method for serum albumin measurement for its simplicity and rapidity
