Effects of Lipofundin® on the Measurement of Total Bilirubin by Spectrophotometry

Background: Jaundice occurs frequently in neonates and can cause severe neurological complications; hence, hyperbilirubinemia is usually monitored by direct spectrophotometry. However, lipemia, resulting from inborn disorders or parenteral feeding of preterm neonates with lipid emulsion, may interfere with certain laboratory assessments. Here, we evaluated whether artificial lipemia also interferes with bilirubin measurement by direct spectrophotometry.
