Hipro's NGAL test kit is used to determine the content of Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) in human serum or plasma. NGAL is a member of the lipocalin family and is a small-molecular-weight secretory protein that is expressed in renal tubular cells. It plays an important role in the development of the kidney and the regeneration of renal tubules after renal injury. It can be rapidly, sensitively, and specifically reflected the injury and repair process of various kidney diseases, and it can be used for the early diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and improvement of the prognosis of acute kidney injury.
The antibody of Neutrophil gelatinase-associated Lipocalin is coated on the latex surface.
The NGAL 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 NGAL levels.
Using a specific protein analyzer to measure the intensity of scattered light, the concentration of NGAL is determined by comparing the turbidity of samples to the standard concentration.
Test time: 330 seconds.
