Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of glucose in serum, plasma or urine. This product is suitable for use on the Hitachi 717 and Hitachi 911/912.


Clinical Significance

The accurate measurement of glucose in serum or plasma is important in the diagnosis and treatment of carbohydrate metabolism disorders such as diabetes mellitus, neonatal hypoglycemia and idiopathic hypoglycemia.

High levels of glucose in the blood usually indicate diabetes however levels can be raised in many other disorders including kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.

Glucose is often measured in conjunction with various tolerance tests after the administration of doses of leucine, insulin, glucagon or glucose.


Principle

Colorimetric method without deproteinisation. Glucose is determined after enzymatic oxidation in the presence of glucose oxidase. The hydrogen peroxide produced, reacts with phenol and 4-aminophenazone to form a red - violet quinoneimine dye. The intensity of the final color is directly proportional to the glucose concentration and is measured at 505 nm.
