Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Uric Acid in serum, plasma and urine. This product is suitable for use on the RX Series instruments which includes the Rx Daytona and the Rx Imola.


Clinical Significance


Uric acid is useful in the diagnosis and treatment of several renal and metabolic disorders including kidney disease, leukemia, psoriasis and starvation.

Elevated levels of uric acid in the blood indicate that the body is breaking down cells too quickly or that the body is not getting rid of uric acid quick enough. High levels can result in inflammation of joints, gout and kidney stones.

Lower than normal levels or uric acid in the blood are rare and not of clinical significance. Decreased values however are associated with some kinds of liver and kidney disease.


Principle


Uric Acid is converted by uricase to allantoin and hydrogen peroxide, which under the catalytic influence of peroxidase, oxidizes 3,5-Dichloro-2-hydroxybenzenesulfonic acid and 4-aminophenazone to form a red-violet quinoneimine compound.
