As the most abundant and stable of the ketone bodies, D-3-Hydroxybutyrate represents a highly sensitive and specific marker of ketosis in both human and veterinary medicine.
Unlike commonly used dipstick tests which measure acetone and acetoacetate, the Randox method is highly specific for D-3-Hydroxybutyrate, making this a much more sensitive marker of ketosis.
D-3-Hydroxybutyrate (Ranbut) Features:
- Suitable for use in both serum and plasma, reducing the risk of false negatives being reported
- Excellent sensitivity of 0.07mmol/l, enabling even small changes in D-3-Hydroxybutyrate concentrations to be detected
- Standard supplied with kit
- Applications available for an extensive range of clinical chemistry analysers
