Standardisation to the highest level
Our fructosamine calibrator and control is assigned relative to human serum glycated with 14C-glucose, thus standardisation is to the highest level and directly reflects the nature of the patient sample
Offering improved specificity and reliability compared to conventional NBT-based methods. This method does not suffer from non-specific interferences unlike existing methods which can also be time consuming and difficult to automate

What is Fructosamine assay used for?
Serum fructosamine levels are elevated in diabetic patients with elevated blood glucose. When blood sugar levels are elevated, glucose binds to proteins such as albumin to form fructosamine, the concentration of which also increases.
Fructosamine is a much earlier indicator of diabetic control compared to HbA1c providing information on a person’s average blood glucose levels over the preceding 14-21 days. As such the American Diabetes Association recognises fructosamine as a useful tool in monitoring diabetes control.
Due to the shorter time span of fructosamine, it is also used to evaluate the effectiveness of medication changes and to monitor the treatment of gestational diabetes. The test is also particularly useful in situations where HbA1c cannot be reliably measured e.g. haemolytic anaemia, thalassemia or with genetic haemoglobin variants.
