Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Carbamazepine in human serum. This product is suitable for use on the RX series instruments which includes the RX daytona and RX imola.

Clinical Significance

Carbamazepine is an anti-epileptic drug used in the treatment of complex partial and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Carbamazepine may also be effective in the long-term treatment of manic-depressive illness. Measurements obtained by this device are used in the diagnosis and treatment of carbamazepine overdose and in monitoring levels of carbamazepine to ensure appropriate therapy.

Principle

Randox Carbamazepine assay is a latex-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay. It is based on the principle of measuring changes in scattered light. The latex particles are coated with carbamazepine, which in the presence of carbamazepine antibody solution, rapidly agglutinate.

When a sample containing carbamazepine is introduced, the agglutination reaction is partially inhibited, slowing down the agglutination process. The rate of agglutination is inversely dependent upon the concentration of carbamazepine in the sample. By monitoring the change in scattered light, as a change in absorbance, a concentration curve can be obtained. The actual change in absorbance is inversely proportional to the concentration of carbamazepine in the sample.

This assay uses an end point method and multipoint calibration.
