Calcium is one of the mineral elements present in the blood, and one of the chief constituents of bone tissue. It is present in small amounts in soft tissues and in extracellular fluids. About 50% of the calcium present in the blood is free, 40% is bound to proteins and 10% is present in compounds. About 80% of calcium bound to proteins is associated with albumin and the remaining 20% with globulins. Extracellular calcium has the role of maintaining intracellular calcium, mineralizing bone, blood coagulation and maintenance of the cell membrane. Calcium is of particular importance in muscular contraction, in addition to being a second messenger which influences enzymatic activity and hormonal secretion. High serum calcium levels (hypercalcemia) are essentially due to an increased flow of extracellular calcium produced by bone, intestinal and renal tissue. Low serum calcium levels (hypocalcemia) may be due to a reduction in the calcium bound to albumin or to the free fraction.
Calcium ions form a highly coloured complex with Arsenazo III at neutral pH. The colour which has formed will correspond to the amount of calcium present in the sample.
