What is Copper assay used for?

Copper is an essential trace element in human nutrition and a component of many metalloenzymes. Copper is important to the function of ceruloplasmin and for the synthesis of melanin and collagen. Copper deficiency is characterised by growth failure and hypo chromic microcytic anaemia; acute copper toxicity can cause gastroenteritis and severe renal failure.

The Randox Copper assay is used to measure the amount of copper in the blood; to help with diagnosis and monitoring of conditions related to copper deficiency or excess-including Wilson’s disease.
