As the most abundant and most stable of the ketone bodies, D-3 Hydroxybutyrate represents a highly sensitive and specific marker of ketosis in both human and veterinary medicine. Unlike the commonly used dipstick methods which measure acetone and acetoacetate in urine the Randox method is highly specific for D-3 Hydroxybutyrate and is suitable for use with both serum and plasma eliminating the risk of false positives or negatives due to drug interferences. As the only kinetic method available for the detection of D-3 Hydroxybutyrate the Randox assay is extremely easy to use and fully automatable. • Wide measuring range 0.1 – 5.75mmol/l • Suitable for use with both serum and plasma samples • Limited interference from haemoglobin • Excellent precision • Excellent correlation to standard methods • Fully automated applications available for a wide range of chemistry analysers
