- For the quantitative measurement of creatinine.
- Two part stable liquid, ready to use reagent. Easy to use, no additional reagent preparation required.
- No significant lipemic interference. Minimizes the need for sample dilutions.
The enzyme creatinine amidohydrolase is used to convert creatinine to creatine. Creatine is broken down to sarcosine and urea by creatine amidinohydrolase. Further enzyme linked steps with sarcosine oxidase and peroxidase yield a colored chromogen read at 545nm.
Creatinine measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases, in the monitoring of dialysis patients, and as an integral part of diagnostic equations to measure renal function.
