Intended Use

The total protein method used on the Dimension® clinical chemistry system is an in vitro diagnostic test intended for the quantitative determination of total protein in serum. This product is suitable for use on the Siemens Dimension® analyzers.

Clinical Significance

The Randox Total Protein test measures the total amount of protein in the blood. Measurements obtained by this method are used in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases involving the liver, kidney and bone marrow as well as other metabolic or nutritional disorders.

Elevated levels of total protein can indicate dehydration, infection, cancer and Waldenstrom’s disease. Low levels are associated with liver disease, glomerulonephritis, malnutrition and Nephrotic syndrome.


The total protein method is a modification of the biuret reaction first introduced by Kingsley and later modified by Henry and presented as the method of choice for serum by Henry. This method incorporates tartrate as a complexing agent to prevent precipitation of Cu(OH)2. Serum blanking increases method sensitivity and minimizes spectral interference from lipemia.
