This kit is intended for In vitro diagnostic use only, must not be sold to the general public and the test has to be carried out by a health-care professional person.
The kit contains reagents sufficient for 938 tests.
Uric acid is the principle product of the catabolism of purine, adenosine and guanosine nucleotides. Approximately 400 mg of uric acid are synthesized daily; food intake accounts for a further 300 mg. About 75% of the uric acid excreted is eliminated in the urine. Most of uric acid is secreted in the gastrointestinal tract where it is degraded by bacterial enzymes into allantoin and other compounds. The amount of uric acid present is determined essentially by the life style adopted, e.g. alimentary habits, alcohol consumption, physical activity, assumption of pharmaceutical products may all influence hyperuricemia. Some the most dangerous complications of uricemia include acute and chronic attacks of gout, and pathological conditions related to renal function.
Uric acid is converted by uricase and hydrogen peroxide which, under the catalytic influence of peroxide (POD), oxidizes compound, reacts with 4aminophenazone and 3,5-diclorophenol-sulphonate giving a red coloured compound, whose colour intensity is directly proportional to the uric acid concentration in the tested sample.
