Intended Use

For the quantitative determination of iron in serum using the Mindray BS-200 analyzer.

Principle

Transferrin-bound iron is released at an acid pH and reduced from ferric to ferrous ions. These ions react with ferrozine to form a violet colored complex which is measured spectrophotometrically at 560nm. The absorbance measured at this wavelength is proportional to serum iron concentration.
