Abstract

In the November 2008 issue of Poultry Science, Editor- in-Chief Scanes raised a concern regarding the magnitude of interassay and interlaboratory variations for reported plasma glucose values in chickens (Scanes, 2008). He suggested that by making an international standard available for the determination of chicken plasma glucose (as well as for other metabolites and hormones), the reliability of the multitude of methods currently employed by the research community could be gauged, with the expectation that interlaboratory variation would decline. In this guest editorial, I wish to call attention to 2 other concerns that fall under the umbrella of analytical and standardization issues, namely egg cholesterol contents and fatty acid contents of egg yolk, tissues, and organs.
