Ferritin Rapid test

Short Description:

Ferritin is a universal intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion.       Plasma ferritin is an indirect marker of the total amount of iron stored in the body; hence serum ferritin is used as a diagnostic test for iron deficiency anemia.

Semi-quantitative Results with different cut-offs of 13 mg/ml (For Female) and 30 ng/ ml (For Male) - Suitable for all kinds of usage.

Whole Blood Test Protocol

Simple Procedure

A normal ferritin blood level, referred to as the reference interval is determined by many testing laboratories. In most tissues, ferritin is a major iron storage protein.

Human ferritin has a molecular weight of approximately 450,000 Daltons, and consists of a protein shell around an iron core; each molecule of ferritin may contain as many as 4,000 iron atoms. Under normal conditions, this may represent 25% of the total iron found in the body.       In addition, ferritin can be found in several isomers.

If the ferritin level is low, there is a risk for lack of iron, which could lead to anemia. Low ferritin may also indicate hypothyroidism, vitamin C deficiency or celiac disease. Low serum ferritin levels are seen in some patients with restless legs syndrome, not necessarily related to anemia, but perhaps due to low iron stores short of anemia.

Ferritin reflects “Stored Iron” or “Available Iron for use” over circulating serum iron and transferrin. Thus, Ferritin is a more reliable marker for Iron Deficiency Anemia over Serum Iron or Transferrin. Ferritin declines earlier than hemoglobin. Thus, Ferritin Estimation has a definitive role in early diagnosis of Iron Deficiency Anemia.

The Ferritin Semi-Quantitative Rapid Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the semi-qualitative detection of human ferritin in human serum or plasma and whole blood at a cut-off concentration of 30 ng/mL for males and a cut-off concentration of 13 ng/mL for females.
