Beckman Coulter A10827 Access DHEAS Calibrator, DHEAS Test (DHEA Sulfate Test) Specifications:

Beckman Coulter A10827 Access DHEAS Calibrator, DHEAS Test (DHEA Sulfate Test): INTENDED USE

The Access DHEAS Calibrators are intended to calibrate the Access DHEAS assay for the quantitative determination of Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate levels in human serum and plasma using the Access Immunoassay Systems.

Beckman Coulter A10827 Access DHEAS Calibrator, DHEAS Test (DHEA Sulfate Test): SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:

Quantitative assay calibration is the process by which samples with known analyte concentrations (i.e., assay calibrators) are tested like patient samples to measure the response. The mathematical relationship between the measured responses and the known analyte concentrations establishes the calibration curve. This mathematical relationship, or calibration curve, is used to convert RLU (Relative Light Unit) measurements of patient samples to specific quantitative analyte concentrations.

What is a DHEA sulfate test (DHEAS Test)?

DHEA sulfate test (DHEAS Test) measures the levels of DHEA sulfate (DHEAS) in your blood. DHEAS stands for dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, a male sex hormone that is found in both men and women. DHEAS plays an important role in making the male sex hormone testosterone and the female sex hormone estrogen. It’s also involved in the development of male sexual characteristics at puberty.

DHEAS is mostly made in the adrenal glands, two small glands located above your kidneys. They help control heart rate, blood pressure, and other body functions. Smaller amounts of DHEAS are made in a man’s testicles and in a woman’s ovaries. If your DHEAS levels are not normal, it may mean there is a problem with your adrenal glands or sex organs (testicles or ovaries.)

Other names: DHEAS, DHEA-S, DHEA, DHEA-SO4, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate.

 

What is it used for?

A DHEA sulfate (DHEAS) test is most often used to:

  • Find out if your adrenal glands are working right
  • Diagnose tumors of the adrenal glands
  • Diagnose disorders of the testicles or ovaries
  • Find out the cause of early puberty in boys
  • Find out the cause of excess body hair growth and development of masculine features in women and girls

A DHEAS test is often done along with other sex hormone tests. These include testosterone tests for men and estrogen tests for women.
