Calcium is an important mineral of our body and it is essential for the formation and maintenance of bones. Just for this reason, the most part of it is concentrated in bones, but 1% of calcium circulates in our blood. So, we can measure it to monitor its level. Half of the calcium in the blood is free and is metabolically active. The remaining half is bound to albumin, with a smaller amount complexed to anions, such as phosphate, and these bound and complexed forms are metabolically inactive. Finally, some calcium is excreted into the urine.
But, why get a test? Obviously, to diagnose symptoms of a disorder affecting thyroid, parathyroid, kidneys and bones, or with certain types cancer.
Gesan Production offers a valid solution to detect direct free calcium distribution in the blood, according to the colorimetric method CPC. That’s a universal exclusive method formulated and manufactured by Gesan. In fact, that revolutionary method permits to measure direct free calcium in every clinical chemistry analyzer.
It’s about no emogas and no electrolytes method, consisting in stabilizing chemically the tied calcium to measure the remaining free calcium. Gesan test is indicated for:
