Intended Use

A prealbumin (transthyretin) test system is a device intended for the quantitative in vitro determination of prealbumin (transthyretin) concentration in serum.


Neat sample is incubated with assay buffer before the addition of antibody reagent, specific for human prealbumin. The absorbance of the resulting turbid solution is read at 340 nm and is proportional to the concentration of prealbumin in the sample. By constructing a standard curve from the absorbance of known standards, the actual concentration of prealbumin in the sample can be determined.
