What is Ammonia assay used for?

The Randox assay is used for the quantitative in vitro determination of ammonia in plasma.

Ammonia is a nitrogen waste compound and forms when the protein is broken down by bacteria in the intestines.  The liver then converts it into urea which is normally excreted from the body in urine.  Excessive concentration levels is poisonous to cells and occurs as a result of liver or kidney malfunctions.  Several diseases, both inherited and acquired can result in significantly elevated concentration levels resulting in hyperammonemia.

Reye’s syndrome is an acquired hyperammonemia disease and is characterised by high concentration levels of ammonia and decreased concentration levels of glucose. As such, an ammonia test is not usually carried out independently and is usually tested alongside glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver function tests in adolescents and children showing symptoms.  For more information on Reye’s syndrome, please click here . Excessive concentration levels is also associated with both liver disease and renal failure which is toxic to the central nervous system.

What is ALT assay used for?

Alanine Aminotransferase is one of the enzymes within the aminotransferases group and are among the most sensitive liver enzymes. The highest concentrations of the ALT enzyme can be in the liver, with decreasing concentrations found in the kidneys, heart, skeletal muscle, pancreas, spleen and lung tissue respectively.

ALT measurements are used in the diagnosis of hepatic damage and diseases including viral hepatitis and cirrhosis.

The normal concentration levels of ALT in the blood are low, however, when damaged, the liver releases more ALT into the blood causing the concentration levels to rise.  When diagnosing for hepatic damage, the root cause of the damage can be established, such as disease, drug, or injury

The ALT test not only allows for the diagnosis of liver disease but also allows for the diagnosis of the root cause of the disease

It is often tested in combination with the aspartate aminotransferase (AST) test as part of the hepatic panel with alanine aminotransferase levels being higher in most types of liver disease.  For more information on the validity and clinical utility of AST and ALT when assessing disease severity, please click here
