Kidneys have the ability to filter up to 220 L of blood per day while excreting urine. The filtering process is complex, yet defined: nephrons remove waste, surplus fluids, and toxins. However, they can retain proteins, minerals, and blood.
Several markers such as creatinine and glucose have been verified to diagnose renal health and pathological conditions like diabetes and chronic kidney disease. BioVision provides the most comprehensive series of research kits targeting renal markers and their products have been validated with human urine, serum, saliva, and plasma.
Figure. (A) Estimation of ACR (Cat. K551-100) in human urine in diabetic (1) and non-diabetic donors (2 and 3). For Albumin, 50 µL of undiluted samples and for Creatinine, 30 µL of diluted samples (100 times diluted using Creatinine Assay Buffer). (B) Estimation of sodium (Cat. K391-100) in human pooled serum Off-the-Clot (5 µL; 50 times diluted) and human urine (10 µL; 100 times diluted). Assays were performed following kit protocols.
The second largest organ in the human body is the liver. It weighs three pounds and has one of the most crucial functions: while producing bile acids and other blood-clotting proteins it detoxifies blood by removing chemicals, toxins, and metabolizes drugs.
A number of hepatic biomarkers like lactate dehydrogenase and alanine amino transferase have been validated for the diagnosis of pathological and physiological conditions such as hepatitis or liver damage.
