- ALBUMIN is the most abundant plasma protein in humans. Albumin plays many important physiological roles, including the maintenance of colloid osmotic pressure and binding of key substances such as long-chain fatty acids, bile acids, bilirubin, haematin, calcium, and magnesium. Serum albumin is a reliable prognostic indicator for liver disease, nephritic syndrome, malnutrition, protein-losing enteropathies, as well as morbidity and mortality. In addition, elevated levels of serum albumin are associated with dehydration. Detection of albumin in the urine is also crucial for the diagnosis of patients with albuminuria disease.BioAssay Systems’ QuantiQuik™ Albumin Test Strips are based on the immobilization of an albumin-sensitive chromagen onto a pad. Albumin will react with the chromagen and produce a colored product. The intensity of the product color is directly proportional to the albumin concentration in the sample. The QuantiQuik™ Albumin Test strips are a rapid and inexpensive method for semi-quantitative determination of albumin that does not require sophisticated laboratory instrument
What samples have you tested?
The strips have been tested on serum, plasma, and urine samples.
My sample turns the strip very dark blue, how can I determine the albumin concentration?
Very dark blue indicates that the diluted sample concentration is greater than 0.4 g/dL Albumin. To obtain a more accurate concentration, the sample should be further diluted and retested. For example, if the sample was tested undiluted, try diluting 5× or 10× in dH2O.
Can I store unused reagents for future use?
Yes, unused reagents can be stored according to the assay protocol. The strips should be kept in a dry, preferably cool location protected from light.
