Intended Use

An Albumin test system is a device intended for the quantitative in vitro determination of Albumin concentration in serum and plasma. This product is suitable for use on RX series instruments which includes the RX daytona and the RX imola.

Clinical Significance

Albumin is the most abundant serum protein representing 55-65% of the total protein. It is synthesised in the liver and has a half-life of 2 to 3 weeks.

The main biological functions of albumin are to maintain the water balance in serum and plasma and to transport and store a wide variety of ligands e.g. fatty acids, calcium, bilirubin and hormones such as thyroxine. Albumin also provides an endogenous source of amino acids.

Albumin measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous diseases involving primarily the liver or kidneys.

Principle

The measurement of serum albumin is based on its quantitative binding to the indicator 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromo-m cresol sulphonphthalein (bromocresol green). The albumin-BCG-complex absorbs maximally at 578 nm.

Available Applications

RX series instruments, including:

RX daytona

RX imola
