Randox are dedicated to improving health worldwide, throughout the month of August we hope to highlight how the Randox clinical product range can help combat infections and infectious diseases through accurate and swift diagnosis allowing the necessary steps to be taken in order to improve an individual’s health. Infection is the infiltration of an organism’s body tissues by disease-causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to the infectious agents and the toxins they produce. Infectious disease, also known as communicable disease and transmissible disease. The Randox portfolio comprises a wide range of products to combat infections including the RX series dedicated infectious disease testing panel, diagnostic reagents such as copper, potassium and sTfR and an extensive QC range catering for infectious disease testing in both liquid & lyophilised formats.
Randox Reagents have the highest quality reagents on the market and a test menu comprising of over 113 assays. Unique to Randox is the copper and zinc assays that hold equal importance in the diagnosis of kidney and liver damage.
The Randox zinc assay can be used to measure levels of zinc in a patient’s urine providing insight into the levels of zinc in the body. The Randox copper assay is used to measure the levels of copper in the blood in order to determine copper toxicity. Combining these Randox assays can aid in identifying the cause of liver damage in a patient, leading to correct treatment and recovery.
