Autokit 3-HBFor In Vitro Diagnostic Use
Autokit 3-HB is an in vitro assay for the quantitative determination of 3-hydroxybutyrate (3-HB) in serum or plasma.
Cyclic Enzymatic Method
Autokit 3-HB is based on Cyclic Enzymatic Method without deproteinization in samples. Standard Method (measuring range 1.17-1000μmol/L) or High Sensitivity Method (measuring range 0.15-200 μmol/L) can be selected depending on the amount of samples.
Principle of the Method
When a sample is mixed with R1, AcAc in the sample is broken down to acetone by AADC.
Upon addition of R2, 3-HB in the sample is oxidized in the presence of 3-HBDH and Thio-NAD. This oxidation triggers the cyclic reactions. Since the original AcAc in the sample has been removed, only 3-HB is assayed by measuring the rate of Thio-NADH production spectrophotometrically.
*In the case of high sensitivity method, sample volume is 17 uL.
