Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K7420100
Ferritin (human) ELISA Kit; Human Ferritin consists of a protein shell around an iron core; each molecule of Ferritin may contain as many as 4,000 iron atoms. Under normal conditions, this may represent 25% of the total iron found in the body. High concentrations of Ferritin are found in the cytoplasm of the reticuloendothelial system, the liver, spleen & bone marrow. The measurement of Ferritin in serum is useful in determining changes in body iron storage. Serum Ferritin levels can be measured routinely & are useful in the early detection of iron- deficiency anemia in apparently healthy people. High Ferritin levels may indicate iron overload without apparent liver damage, as may be noted in the early stages of idiopathic hemochromatosis. Ferritin levels in serum have also been used to evaluate clinical conditions not related to iron storage, including inflammation, chronic liver disease, & malignancy. BioVision charges an Ice pack and Insulated Container fee of $25.00 for each order.
