Randox – Nutritional Status

Randox are dedicated to improving health worldwide, throughout the month of July we hope to highlight how the Randox clinical product range can assess an individual’s nutritional status both accurately and swiftly allowing the necessary steps to be taken in order to improve nutritional status. Nutritional status is influenced by diet, the levels of nutrients in the body and the body’s ability to maintain normal levels of metabolic integrity. Assessing nutritional status will generally indicate if an individual is eating the correct variety and quantity of nutrients. The Randox portfolio comprises a wide range of products to combat nutritional status issues including the RX series range of biochemistry analysers, diagnostic reagents such as zinc, copper & lipase and an extensive QC range catering for nutritional status testing in both liquid & lyophilised formats.

Nutritional Status: Reagents

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.

Nutritional Status: RX series

The RX series range offers the most comprehensive testing profile for assessing nutritional status to identify any nutritional deficiencies or any other nutritional issues within an individual. The world famed RX series test menu possesses the most extensive nutritional status testing panel available to give an expansive picture of an individual’s nutritional status. The RX series zinc test can identify a zinc deficiency in an individual which is often a result of a low dietary intake and can lead to many problems including impaired immune & cognitive functions, kidney disease and diabetes.

The Randox clinical product range offers a wide range of products to combat heart issues including the RX series extensive cardiac testing panel, reagents such as H-FABP, Adiponectin an TxB Cardio and an extensive cardiac QC range available in both liquid & lyophilised format.

Several of these reagents will play a key role in diagnosis in woman such as Randox’s Lipoprotein (a) – Lp(a) test,   The Randox Lp(a) offers swift and accurate diagnosis of elevated circulation Lp(a) levels which is significant for woman as women have an increased risk of CVD due to elevated levels of Lp(a).  Several traditional CVD risk markers, including elevated LDL may be absent in some women, elevated Lp(a) levels may identify women at high risk of developing CVD.

Women's Health: RX series

The RX series range of clinical chemistry analysers offers the most comprehensive testing profile for assessing health in males and females. Urinary tract infections are more commonly found in women and the RX series extensive renal function panel will provide clarity  in terms of a woman’s urological health by testing for 19 separate analytes, including microalbumin. The RX series microalbumin test can detect very low levels of albumin in urine and if albumin is detected it can be an indicator of kidney injury and can result in irreversible damage.
