Monitoring deficiency/excess of iron & inflammation
Ferritin is a universal intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. Too little ferritin can lead to anemia, while too much to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, other inflammatory conditions, or hyperthyroidism. The ferritin test measures the level of ferritin in the blood.
INTENDED USE :
ichroma Ferritin is a fluorescence Immunoassay (FIA) for the quantitative determination of Ferritin in human serum/plasma. It is useful as an aid for quantifying human ferritin.
For in vitro diagnostic use only.
The test uses a sandwich immunodetection method; the detector antibodies in buffer bind to antigen in the sample, forming antigen-antibody complexes, and migrates onto nitrocellulose matrix to be captured by the other immobilized-antibodies on test strip.
More antigens in the sample will form more antigen-antibody complexes which lead to stronger fluorescence signal by detector antibodies, which is processed by Instrument for ichroma tests to show ferritin concentration in sample.
