Abstract Reference intervals were determined for 21 clinical chemistry analytes in umbilical cord arterial and venous blood from healthy term infants. Nonparametric analysis (rank number) was used to determine the central 95\% reference interval. No significant differences were observed between male and female infants. Reference intervals for glucose, urea, creatinine, urate, phosphate, calcium, albumin, total protein, cholesterol, triglycerides, alkaline phosphatase, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, gamma-glutamyltransferase, and magnesium all were significantly different from adult values.
