Test for the quantitative determination of urea in blood, serum or plasma with Reflotron.
Urea is determined for the evaluation of renal function. The test is often used together with the determination of creatinine for differentiation between prerenal and postrenal azotaemia on the basis of the urea/creatinine ratio. Other indications for the determination of urea are end-stage renal failure and determination in dialysis patients as the urea concentration is representative for protein breakdown and provides information on the metabolic status.
Available in a tube of 15 test/strips.
