Check-1 Microalbumin Quantitative Rapid Test for Easy Reader+® Urine 10 mins
Check-1 Microalbumin Quantitative Rapid Test for Easy Reader+® Urine 10 mins (27091-3L) is an immunochromatographic rapid test for the quantitative detection of microalbumin in urine. Manufactured by VEDALAB.
In patients with diabetes mellitus, a slight albuminuria (microalbuminuria) is predictive of diabetic nephropathy (1, 2), early overall mortality (3) and increased cardiovascular mortality (4, 5). In non-diabetic populations, microalbuminuria has implicated association with hypertension (6), obesity (7), blood glucose concentrations (8) and plasma triglyceride concentration.
M-ALBU-CHECK-1 is a rapid quantitative test for the detection of albumin in urine samples. The method relies on competitive binding of anti-albumin monoclonal antibodies gold conjugate with free albumin present in the urine sample and membrane coated albumin. Depending on microalbumin concentration in the sample, different lines will appear on the test, allowing the quantitative measurement of microalbumin, when used in combination with the Easy Reader® rapid test reader.
