Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Ferritin in serum. This product is suitable for use on the RX daytona plus RX series analyser.

Clinical Significance

Ferritin originates in the reticuloendothelial system. It consists of a protein shell, apoferritin (MW 445000) containing varying amounts of iron in its core as ferric hydroxide - phosphate complexes. All complexes contain 2 separate subunits, the acidic H (heavy) type and the weakly basic L (light) type subunit. While the basic isoferritins are concerned with the long-term storage of iron, they are present in the liver, spleen and bone marrow, the acidic isoferritins can be found mainly in the placenta, tumour tissue and myocardium.

Ferritin determination is a good indicator of iron stores in both normal persons and in individuals with iron deficiency or those who are undergoing iron therapy. This assay can be used to differentiate hypochromic anaemia (thalassemia or chronic infection and tumour anaemias).

Principle

This method is based on the reaction of a sample containing human ferritin and specific antiserum to form an insoluble complex which can be measured turbidimetrically. A calibration curve is constructed from which the concentration of ferritin is determined.
