The method is linear up to a concentration of 150 µmol/l. In the event of a rerun, the linearity is extended to 225 µmol/l
Exceptional correlation with standard methods
A correlation coefficient of 0.99 was obtained with another commercially available method
With two shot ready-to-use liquid reagents, it is convenient and can also help reduce the risk of errors occurring

What is the Bile Acids assay used for?
Fasting serum Bile Acids can be used in the diagnosis and prognosis of liver disease. Levels rise in many liver diseases, for example hepatitis and liver sclerosis. Abnormal levels in fasting patients or immediately after a meal can be used to detect liver disease and damage, impaired liver function, intestinal dysfunction and perhaps a gall bladder blockage. Bile Acid measurement may detect some forms of liver disease earlier than standard liver tests because Bile Acids levels correspond to liver function, rather than liver damage. In veterinary medicine, Bile Acid measurement is considered to be a superior indicator of liver disease.
The fifth Generation Randox Total Bile Acids assay uses liquid stable two shot reagents in an enzymatic colorimetric assay for the quantitative in vitro determination of Bile Acids in serum or EDTA Heparinized plasma. The assay incorporates a more complex enzyme cycling mechanism than previous generations to amplify the signal, improving sensitivity and precision and reducing interference in haemolytic and lipaemic samples.
