Enzymatic Test for Glycated Albumin

EKF Diagnostics offers the Lucica Glycated Albumin-L assay (manufactured by Asahi-Kasei Pharma Corporation of Japan). The test is intended to be used for the quantitative measurement of glycated albumin in human serum on compatible clinical chemistry analyzers with open channel capability. It specifically measures both glycated albumin (enzymatic) and total albumin (BCP) in separate reactions. Results are expressed as a ratio (%) of glycated albumin to total albumin, thus minimizing differences in protein concentrations between patients.
