Most assays for carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) (1)(2)(3) use cartridge extraction of CDT isoforms followed by immunoassay (4)(5). In 2001 the US Food and Drug Administration cleared the %CDT turbidimetric immunoassay (TIA; Axis Shield Plc) for detection of sustained and harmful alcohol use. Another method, based on anion-exchange HPLC separation of the CDT isoforms with direct detection at 460 nm [selective for the iron–transferrin (Tf) complex], was first developed by Jeppsson et al. (6) and adopted with minor changes by several authors, who reported advantages over immunoassays in terms of analytical selectivity, accuracy, and precision (7)(8)(9)(10). Recently released commercial reagents for HPLC analysis (Recipe®) offer advantages in interlaboratory analytical standardization.
