WHAT IS IRON DEFICIENCY?

 

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional disorders today, and at its most extreme, this iron deficiency can develop into iron deficiency anemia.  Anemia usually occurs when a lower than normal number of red blood cells is present, or if the red blood cells do not contain enough hemoglobin.

Iron builds strong red blood cells, and Ferritin is one of the body’s primary iron-storage proteins.  Thus, measuring ferritin in serum is useful in understanding iron deficiency, or in some cases, an abundance of iron.  This increase in iron generally appears in patients who have regular blood transfusions, or have a predisposed genetic disorder.

 

ADVANTAGES OF FERRITIN ELISA KITS

Ferritin ELISA Kits are perfect testing methods for determining the amount of Ferritin concentration in human serum.   Ferritin ELISA Kits are rapid, sensitive, and reliable.  The antibodies developed for the Ferritin ELISA Kits can determine a minimum concentration of human ferritin of 5 ng/ml.  The Ferritin ELISA Kits are also important for laboratory monitoring of the iron levels of pregnant women, blood donors, and renal dialysis patients.

Ferritin ELISA Kits are based on a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Ferritin ELISA kits utilize one anti-ferritin antibody for solid phase immobilization, and another mouse monoclonal anti-ferritin antibody in the antibody-enzyme conjugate solution.  The Ferritin ELISA Kit sample is allowed to react simultaneously with the antibodies, resulting in the ferritin molecules being sandwiched between the solid phase and enzyme-linked antibodies.

 

Ferritin ELISA Kits have a Sensitivity of 5.0ng/ml and a Specificity of 98.7%.  Total time to obtain results of Ferritin ELISA kits, is approximately 80 minutes.

 

Like other ELISA Kits, Ferritin ELISA Kits have many notable features:

  • User-friendly directions and explanation of test procedures
  • Simple and safe reagent preparation
  • Clear instructions on specimen collection
  • Comprehensive package of required materials
  • Explicit quality control and storage guidelines
  • Reliable and easy-to-read test results
