Glutamate Dehydrogenase (GLDH)
Key benefits of the Randox Glutamate Dehydrogenase (GLDH) reagent
Wide measuring range
The Randox GLDH (DGKC) assay has a wide measuring range of 2.90 – 77.3 U/l which will comfortably detect levels outside of the healthy range
The GLDH (DGKC) assay showed a correlation of r=0.99 against another commercially available method
Stable to expiry date
Stable to expiry date when stored at +15oC to +25oC.
What is GLDH assay used for?
GLDH measurements can be taken to evaluate the liver function. Elevated blood serum levels indicate liver damage. GLDH also plays an important role in the differential diagnosis of liver disease, especially in combination with aminotransferases.
Liver diseases such as toxic liver damage or hypoxic liver disease are characterised by high serum levels. In clinical trials, GLDH can also be used as a measurement for the safety of a drug.
The Randox GLDH is an optimised standard method according to the recommendations of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Klinische Chemie. This procedure measures the non specific creep reaction.
