IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Anemia Test, Transferrin-Bound Iron
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of a sample of blood (typically serum) to determine the level of iron bound to serum transferrin, but not the iron contained in serum as free hemoglobin. Low levels of iron in serum are found in many but not all patients with iron deficiency anemia caused by dietary deficiency, chronic blood loss, or by a group of disorders known as sideroblastic anemia. Decreased levels of iron are also associated with chronic infection and cancer.
