Biosystems Albumin Reagent

Biosystems Albumin Reagent


Biosystems Albumin Reagent for the measurement of albumin concentration in human serum or plasma. The obtained
values are useful as an aid in the evaluation of protein synthesis of the liver in the chronic liver
diseases and for the study of the nutritional status.
This reagent is for use in the BioSystems BA analyzers or in other analyzer with similar performance characteristics.
Albumin is the most abundant protein in human plasma. It has three main functions: it contributes
towards maintaining the colloid oncotic pressure of plasma, it acts as non-specific transport vehicle for many nonpolar compounds and it is a source of endogenous amino acids.
Hyperalbuminemia is of little diagnostic significance except in dehydration1

Hypoalbuminemia is found as a result of several factors: reduced synthesis caused by liver
diseases; reduced absorption of amino acids due to malabsorption syndromes or malnutrition;
increased catabolism as a result of inflammation or tissue damage; altered distribution between
intravascular and extravascular space due to increased capillary permeability, overhydration or
ascites; abnormal losses caused by renal disease (nephrotic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, chronic
glomerulonephritis, systemic lupus erythematosus), gastrointestinal tract disease (ulcerative
colitis, Crohn’s disease) or skin damage (exfoliative dermatitis, extensive burns); congenital
absence of albumin or analbuminemia1,2

Albumin plasma concentrations, although important for management and follow-up, have very
little value in diagnosis1
Clinical diagnosis should not be made on the findings of a single test result, but should integrate
both clinical and laboratory data.
Albumin in the sample reacts with bromocresol green in acid medium forming a coloured complex
that can be measured by spectrophotometry3
