Beckman Coulter OSR6175 Olympus Prealbumin Reagent R2 for Prealbumin Test (albumin reagent Prealbumin R2):

Prealbumin is a transport protein. It plays a significant role in the metabolism of vitamin A by complexing with retinol-binding protein which in turn complexes with Vitamin A transporting it through the body. This protein is an acute phase reactant whose levels fall in inflammation, malignancy, cirrhosis of the liver and protein wasting diseases of the gut or kidneys. Decreases are associated with liver disease and malnutrition. Levels of Prealbumin increase in Hodgkins disease.

Beckman Coulter OSR6175 Olympus Prealbumin Reagent R2 for Prealbumin Test (albumin reagent Prealbumin R2) Methodology:

Immune complexes formed in solution scatter light in proportion to their size, shape and concentration. Turbidimeters measure the reduction of incident light due to reflection, absorption, or scatter.

In the procedure, the measurement of the decrease in light transmitted (increase in absorbance) through particles suspended in solution as a result of complexes formed during the antigen-antibody reaction, is the basis of this assay.

A prealbumin blood test measures prealbumin levels in your blood. Prealbumin is a protein that’s made in your liver. Prealbumin helps carry thyroid hormones and vitamin A through your bloodstream. It also helps control how your body uses energy.

If your prealbumin levels are lower than normal, it may be a sign of malnutrition. Malnutrition is a condition where your body doesn’t get enough of the nutrients that you need for good health, such as proteinvitamins, and minerals.

 

 

 

Malnutrition can happen if you:

Other names: thyroxine binding prealbumin, PA, transthyretin test, transthyretin, tryptophan-rich prealbumin

What is Prealbumin Test used for?

A prealbumin test may be used to help:

  • Find out if you are getting enough nutrients, especially protein, in your diet
  • Check for nutrition problems if you have a risk of malnutrition because you:
    • Are in the hospital with certain diseases
    • Have had surgery
    • Have a serious or chronic (long-lasting) illness
