Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Transferrin in Serum. This product is suitable for use on the Hitachi 704, 717, 902 and 911/912.

Clinical Significance

Plasma levels of Transferrin are regulated by the availability of iron and increase when plasma iron is low. Levels correlate well with the Total Iron Binding capacity of serum. Transferrin levels increase during pregnancy and oestrogen administration and are also associated with a range of conditions including anaemia, iron deficiency, inflammation or malignancy, liver disease, malnutrition and protein loss.


Sample is reacted with a buffer containing antibody specific for human transferrin (siderophilin). The absorbance (600 nm) of the resulting turbid solution is proportional to the concentration of transferrin in the sample. By constructing a standard curve from the absorbance of standards, transferrin concentration of sample can be determined.
