Beckman Coulter OSR6122 Olympus PHOS Reagent- Inorganic Phosphorus Test (PHOS Test) Specifications:

Beckman Coulter OSR6122 Olympus PHOS Reagent- Inorganic Phosphorus Test (PHOS Test) – Intended Use:

OSR6122 Olympus PHOS Reagent for the quantitative determination of Inorganic Phosphorus in human serum and urine on Beckman Coulter AU analyzers.

Beckman Coulter OSR6122 Olympus PHOS Reagent- Inorganic Phosphorus Test (PHOS Test):

Inorganic phosphorus measurements help diagnose and treat various disorders related to the parathyroid gland, kidneys, and vitamin D imbalance. The method for determining phosphorus levels in protein-free blood filtrates was first described by Fiske and Subbarow in 1925. They used ammonium molybdate and aminoaphtholsulfonic acid as a reducing agent. Later, ferrous sulfate, introduced by Summer, improved the process, allowing for better specificity in dealing with different types of phosphates.

In 1953, Taussky and Shorr enhanced the method further by using ferrous ammonium sulfate, which is more stable. Then, in 1957, Dryer, Tammes, and Routh increased the sensitivity of the reaction by measuring absorbance at 340 nm instead of the previously recommended 650 to 750 nm.

Beckman Coulter OSR6122 Olympus PHOS Reagent- Inorganic Phosphorus Test (PHOS Test) Methodology:

The test is a modification of the method developed by Daly and Ertingshausen. In this method, inorganic phosphate reacts with molybdate to form a heteropolyacid complex. The use of a surfactant eliminates the need for a protein-free filtrate. The absorbance at 340/380 nm directly correlates with the Inorganic Phosphorus level in the sample.

What is a phosphate in blood test?

A phosphate in blood test measures the amount of phosphate in a sample of your blood. Phosphate contains the mineral phosphorus. So, a phosphate test is sometimes called a phosphorus test.

Phosphate is a type of electrolyte. Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals. They help control the amount of fluid and the balance of acids and bases (pH balance) in your body. Your body also needs phosphates for many other important processes, such as:

  • Building strong bones and teeth. Most of the phosphate in your body is found in your bones where it is combined with the mineral calcium.
  • Making energy.
  • Helping your nerves and muscles work properly.

The phosphorus in phosphate comes from the foods you eat, including nuts and seeds, dairy products, dried beans, meats, poultry, and eggs. Your body tightly controls the amount of phosphate in your blood mainly through your:

 

  • Kidneys. They filter extra phosphate from your blood and get rid of it through urine (pee). If your phosphate level is low, your kidneys limit the amount lost through urine.
  • Intestines. They control how much phosphorous you absorb from the foods you eat.

The amount of phosphate in your blood is also linked to your levels of:

  • Calcium. When blood calcium levels increase, phosphate levels decrease. And when calcium levels decrease, phosphate levels increase.
  • Vitamin D. It helps your body use phosphate.
  • Parathyroid hormone (PTH). This hormone is made by parathyroid glands in your neck. It helps balance phosphate and calcium levels in your blood.

Abnormal phosphate levels may be a sign of problems with the systems in your body that control phosphate levels. To help understand the cause of abnormal levels, the test is often done with blood tests that measure calciumvitamin D, and PTH.

Other names: phosphorus test, P, PO4, phosphorus-serum, phosphate, inorganic phosphorus

What is it used for?

A phosphate in blood test is often used with other tests to help diagnose and/or monitor:

  • Kidney disease, especially chronic kidney disease. High phosphate levels are a common sign that the kidneys aren’t working well to get rid of extra phosphate in the blood.
  • Bone disorders. High phosphate levels can pull calcium out of bones and weaken them over time.
  • Parathyroid disorders. Parathyroid hormones control the balance of phosphate and calcium in the blood. A phosphate test can help show how well the parathyroid glands are working.

A phosphate test may also be used to monitor people who:

  • Have diabetes that isn’t well controlled
  • Have signs of an acid-base imbalance (having too much or too little acid in your blood)
