About Beckman Coulter OSR6098 Olympus Uric Acid Reagent (Uric Acid Test)

Uric Acid Test measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous renal and metabolic disorders, including renal failure, gout, leukemia, psoriasis, starvation, or other wasting conditions, and of patients receiving cytotoxic drugs.

Beckman Coulter OSR6098 Olympus Uric Acid Reagent (Uric Acid Test): Methodology

Uric-acid can be determined by direct measurement, by measurement of oxygen consumed, or by measurement of hydrogen peroxide produced by the uricase reaction. Several methods utilize coupled enzyme reactions to detect the hydrogen peroxide produced by the uricase reaction. Fossati et al
proposed a method that utilized the well-established Trinder reaction to measure the hydrogen peroxide produced, and a substituted phenol to enhance sensitivity.

This Uric-Acid procedure is a modification of the Fossati method. Uric-acid is converted by uricase to allantoin and hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide reacts with 4-aminoantipyrine (4-AAP) in the presence of N,N-bis(4-sulfobutyl)-3,5-dimethylaniline, disodium salt (MADB) to produce a chromophore which is read bichromatically at 660/800 nm. The amount of dye formed is proportional to the uric-acid concentration in the sample.

What is a uric acid test?

This uric acid test measures the amount of uric-acid in a sample of your blood or urine (pee). Uric-acid is a normal waste product that your body makes when it breaks down chemicals called purines. Purines come from your cells when they die. Purines are also found in many foods and beverages.

Most uric-acid dissolves in your blood. Your kidneys filter the uric-acid out of your blood, and it leaves your body in your urine. If uric-acid builds up in your blood, it can form needle-shaped crystals in and around your joints. This condition is called gout.

Gout is a type of arthritis that causes painful swelling in your joints. High uric-acid levels can also cause kidney stones, or kidney failure. But not everyone with high levels of uric-acid will have these problems.

 

Other names: serum urate, UA, uric-acid: serum and urine

What is Uric Acid Test used for?

A uric-acid blood test may be used to:

  • Help diagnose gout, usually when done with a synovial fluid analysis.
  • Monitor uric-acid levels in people who are having cancer chemotherapy or certain other cancer treatments. When treatment kills cancer cells quickly, they release large amounts of purines into the blood. This can lead to serious problems from high uric-acid levels. Testing helps catch an increase in uric-acid so it can be treated early.

A uric-acid urine test may be used to:

  • Help find out whether high levels of uric-acid are causing kidney stones
  • Monitor the risk of developing kidney stones in people who have gout
