Abstract[1. Introduction]This communication presents data upon a number of aspects of in vitro analysis in the field of thyroid diagnosis. Results are examined quantitatively and the clinical value and limitations of the data are presented. All the information is derived from the use of Thyopac-3 and Thyopac-4, a T3 uptake test and a total serum thyroxine assay respectively. They differ from other methods in being based upon an equilibrium rather than a continuing reaction. [2. Thyopac-3][Maintenance of Scale]The nature of the equilibrium of this process is shown in figure 1. It can be seen that the reaction continues during the first ten minutes but at this point equilibrium is reached and the outcome is thereafter independent of time.
