Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Serum Iron in serum and plasma. This product is suitable for use on the Hitachi 704, 717, 902, 911 and 912 analysers.

Clinical Significance

Iron (non-heme) measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as iron deficiency anaemia, hemochromatosis (a disease associated with widespread deposit in the tissues of two iron-containing pigments, hemosiderin and hemofuscin, and characterized by pigmentation of the skin), and chronic renal disease.

Principle

Ferric iron is dissociated from its carrier protein, transferrin, in an acid medium and simultaneously reduced to the ferrous form. The ferrous iron is then complexed with the chromogen, a sensitive iron indicator, to produce a coloured chromophore which absorbs at 570 nm.
