AROTEC Diagnostics is pleased to offer a native source of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL)
Identified as a pivotal early biomarker for the diagnosis of acute kidney injury. Acute kidney injury is a common complication and prognostic factor in the longterm outcome of patients undergoing liver transplantation.
Creatinine has been a key marker in the diagnosis of renal injury, but it does not distinguish between acute kidney injury, prerenal azotemia and chronic renal disease. The accumulation of creatinine can also lag behind the injury which can ultimately cause delays in diagnosis.
NGAL is found to increase with renal injury earlier than creatinine, within 2 hours or less, offering a powerful and effective diagnostic tool.
AROTEC's NGAL is a 23KDa glycoslyated dimer with over 90% purity.
