Iron Assay Kit is a quantitative colorimetric iron determination at 590 nm.
Iron level in blood is a reliable diagnostic indicator of various disease states. Increased levels of iron concentration in blood are associated with blood loss, increased destruction of red blood cells (e.g. hemorrhage) or decreased blood cell survival, acute hepatitis, certain sideroachrestic anemias, ingestion of iron-rich diets, defects in iron storage (e.g. pernicious anemia). Decreased levels of blood iron may result from insufficient iron ingestion from diets, chronic blood loss pathologies, or increased demand on iron storage as during normal pregnancy.
Direct Assays: iron in biological samples (e.g. serum).Drug Discovery/Pharmacology: effects of drugs on iron metabolism.Environmental Monitoring: iron in soil extracts, mineralized samples.
