1. Product Introduction
Rapid Myoglobin Test is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. It is designed for qualitative determination of myoglobin in human serum, plasma or whole blood.
Myoglobin (MYO) is a type of protein in your body. It’s naturally present in your heart and skeletal muscle. If you’re healthy, MYO will remain within your muscle. If your muscle is damaged, it will release myoglobin into your bloodstream. An increase in blood myoglobin means that there has been very recent injury to muscle tissue. Some examples of causes of increased levels include: accidents that result in muscle trauma; seizures; surgery; any muscle disease, such as muscular dystrophy; inflammation of skeletal muscles; heart attack. Your doctor may suggest additional tests to reach a diagnosis if your results are outside of the normal range.
