- For the quantitative measurement of aspartate aminotransferase.
- Can be run as a two part or single part reagent system. Easy to use; no additional reagent preparation required.
- Wide variety of chemistry analyzer applications available. Flexible testing.
Elevated concentrations of aspartate aminotransferase result from a myocardial infarction, or hepatic disease. In cases of hepatic necrosis, elevations of AST concentrations occur prior to the onset of clinical symptoms such as jaundice. To a lesser extent elevated concentrations are indicative of diseases of some internal organs.
