Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Glucose in serum, plasma and urine. This product is suitable for both manual and automated use.


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

Glucose is determined after enzymatic oxidation in the presence of glucose oxidase. The hydrogen peroxide formed reacts, under catalysis of peroxidase, with phenol and 4-aminophenazone to form a red - violet quinoneimine dye as indicator.
