What is Lactate assay used for?
Increased concentration of lactate in the blood is an indicator of anaerobic metabolism i.e. blood flow to the tissues decrease and oxygen delivery is insufficient. In cases of severe oxygen deprivation “Lactic Acidosis” may occur. L-Lactate may therefore be used as an indicator of severity of circulatory failure.
