Research was performed to determine the statistical reliability of a single dye test for the estimation of individual Vitamin- C status, and to determine the range and variability in a group of presumably healthy subjects. Statistical reliability of single dye tests for the estimation of individual Vitamin-C level was found to be below acceptable limits for biological measurements, but it is felt that such tests may be useful for screening patients at the extremes of ascorbic acid tissue levels. It was indicated that intradermal dye test is an acceptable index for the estimation and comparison of group ascorbic acid tissue levels. Author
