Intended Use

Immunoturbidemetric assay for the quantitative in vitro determination of Lipoprotein (a) in human serum or plasma.

Principle

Agglutination occurs due to an antigen-antibody reaction between Lp(a) in a sample and anti-Lp(a) antibody adsorbed to latex particles. This agglutination is detected as an absorbance change at 700 nm proportional to the concentration of Lp(a) in the sample.
