Liquizyme glucose reagent is intended for the in-vitro quantitative, diagnostic determination of glucose in human serum, plasma, urine and CSF on both manual and automated systems
Oxidation of glucose present in the peripheral blood represents the major source of cellular energy in the body. Dietary glucose is stored in the liver in the form of glycogen or converted to fatty acids and stored in the adipose tissues. The accurate estimation of glucose is important in the diagnosis and management of hyperglycemia & hypoglycemia. the most frequent cause of hyperglycemia is diabetes mellitus resulting from a deficiency in insulin secretion or action. Hypoglycemia may be the result of an insulinoma, insulin administration, inborn error of carbohydrate metabolism or fasting. The concentration of glucose in the blood is controlled within narrow limits by many hormones, the most important of which are produced by the pancreas.
GLUCOSE measurement in urine is used as diabetes screening procedure and to aid in the evaluation of glucosuria to detect renal tubular defect and in the management of diabetes mellitus.
GLUCOSE measurement in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is used for evaluation of meningitis, neoplastic involvement of meninges and other neurological disorders
