Test Utility

This assay detects the sum of all circulation protein in the bloodstream. Total protein values are used in the diagnosis and treatment of many metabolic and nutritional disorders.

Urine Drug Screen Profile Includes:

Methodology

The Total Protein assay is a modification of the Weichselbaum method, where a violet-colored complex is produced when cupric ions react with proteins and polypeptides in an alkaline solution.  The absorbance of this complex at 540/660 nm is directly proportional to the protein concentration of the sample.
