Aldosterone radioimmunoassay kit RIA
Diagnosis primary or secondary hyperaldosteronism in hypertensive patients
Assess different origins of primary hyperaldosteronism
The Endocrine Society recommends using the aldosterone/renin ratio to detect primary aldosteronism* *Funder JW et al. J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2008;93(9): 3266-81.
- CALIBRATED AGAINST GCMS
- EXTENSIVE DYNAMIC RANGE
The assay is based on a competition between a fixed amount of 125I-aldosterone and the aldosterone contained in the samples for a fixed and limited number of antibody binding sites adsorbed onto the walls of the tube.
NB: prior to urine assay, a specific preparation is required.
One-step assay procedure: 3h at RT / shaking.
Working range: 0 – 1500 pg/mL or 0 – 4150 pmol/L
serum or plasma - 200 µL
urine - 500 µL
Analytical sensitivity: 7 pg/mL or 19,4 pmol/L
|Plasma aldosterone pg/mL|
