1 April 1996 Near-infrared spectroscopy of lysed blood: pH effects
Author Affiliations +
Recent investigations by our group have demonstrated that near-infrared spectra collected from lysed blood solutions can be used to create clinically useful partial least squares (PLS) models for pH with standard errors of prediction below 0.05 pH units for a pH range of 1 (6.8 to 7.8). Further work was performed in order to discern the primary source of pH information in the spectra. Results from these experiments are presented using spectral data acquired over the spectral range of 1300 nm to 2500 nm from plasma, lysed blood and amino acids solutions. Data were analyzed by principal component analysis (PCA) and loading vectors were compared. Experiments were designed to eliminate possible correlation between pH and other components in the system in order to ensure variations in the spectral data were due to hydrogen ion changes only. Results indicate that variations in the spectral characteristics of histidine mimic those seen in lysed blood, but not those seen in plasma, suggesting that histidine residues from hemoglobin are providing the necessary variation for pH modeling in the lysed blood solutions.
