I just sent for their G3DPH kit. I haven't received it yet. As for transferrin
receptor, I do know that it's level can vary in response to some virus
infections. So I guess the caveat is know your system. If you can assure
yourself that your system's conditions don't effect transferrin receptor you
should be fine.
