NGAL is one of the most effective biomarkers for the diagnosis of AKI, and its changes are earlier and more significant than traditional AKI diagnostic indicators.
Applicable to various sample types of serum, plasma, whole blood and urine
Rapid detection of single reagent (15 minutes)
Convenient storage and transportation at room temperature
Acute kidney injury (AKI) refers to the abnormality of kidney structure and function (including abnormal blood, urine, histology and imaging examination) within 3 months of disease course. resulting in clinical syndromes with different clinical manifestations.
In recent years, some new and more sensitive biomarkers of AKI have been discovered in clinical and laboratory studies, which can not only diagnose AKI before serum creatinine rises, but also provide help for the etiological diagnosis of AKI.
NGAL The best index for early diagnosis of acute kidney injury
CYS-C The best endogenous index of glomerular filtration rate
β2-MG Monitoring indicators of proximal tubule function
MAU Sensitive indicator of early or mild kidney injury
Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL)
NGAL is a member of the lipocalin family and normally maintains low levels in urine and blood. In the early stage (2h) of acute kidney injury (AKI), the level of NGAL in urine and blood increased significantly, and NGAL appeared before other indicators. Therefore, NGAL is one of the most effective biomarkers for the diagnosis of AKI, and its changes are earlier and more significant than traditional AKI diagnostic indicators.
