For the quantitative determination of lactate in human plasma on the Mindray BS-480 Analyzer. For in vitro diagnostic use only.
Lactate oxidase catalyzes the oxidation of lactic acid to pyruvate and hydrogen peroxide. Peroxidase then catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen peroxide with a hydrogen donor, in the presence of 4-aminophenazone, to form a dye. Color intensity, measured at 550nm, is proportional to the lactate concentration in the sample.
