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.
