The Myo blood test kit is used for the determination of myoglobin (Mb) content in serum.
Myoglobin is a heme protein found in the cytoplasm of the myocardium and skeletal muscle. It is not found in smooth muscle, has a molecular weight of 17500 and a half-life of about 15 minutes. Myoglobin can be detected in the blood 1 to 4 hours after the onset of acute myocardial infarction, peaking in 6 to 7 hours, is one of the earliest biomarkers representing the rise of myocardial injury.
The antibody of Myohemoglobin is coated on the latex surface.
The MB in the sample and the antibody become immune complexes by Latex agglutination reaction.
The immune complexes will produce the phenomenon of light scattering which is proportional to the intensity of scattered light and samples of MB levels.
Using a specific protein analyzer to measure the intensity of scattered light, the concentration of MB is determined by comparing the turbidity of samples to the standard concentration.
Test time: 300 seconds.
