About Prealbumin Reagent

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.


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.
