ß-Hydroxybutyrate ready-to-use reagent
DiaSys offers an improved, liquid-stable and ready-to-use reagent for common clinical chemistry analysers. For the determination of ß-hydroxybutyrate (ß-HBUT) serum and plasma samples can be used. ß-HBUT is an important marker to detect diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a potentially life-threatening complication in diabetes mellitus, which can lead to coma or even death. The new ß-Hydroxybutyrate 21 FS offers a wide measuring range which ensures few sample repeats and therefore is time- and cost-saving. Interferences to endogenous and exogenous substances were minimized and calibration and on-board stability were prolonged to 12 weeks. The new ß-Hydroxybutyrate 21 FS is robust and provides accurate and highly reproducible results.
