Intended Use

For the quantitative determination of glucose in serum, plasma and urine. This product is suitable for use on the Siemens Dimension® analyzers.


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

The glucose method is an adaptation of the hexokinase-glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase method. This method is more specific than general reducing methods and will give results lower than those obtained by such reducing methods.
