An introduction to Beta-Hydroxybutyrate The Stanbio Chemistry LiquiColor® Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (B-HB) reagent is used to detect ketones to identify patients suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis, amongst many other clinical applications. Beta-hydroxybutyrate is the best test for monitoring ketosis Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is the most predominate ketone present during DKA and trends with a patient’s clinical status. Since the Beta-Hydroxybutyrate assay is quantitative it can be used for monitoring ketosis to resolution, making it the superior ketone test. Our Beta-Hydroxybutyrate reagent is used by over 1,100 hospitals in the USA and can be run on an open channel of a laboratory analyzer. In addition, Beta-Hydroxybutyrate can be used to clinically diagnose and monitor the disease status or severity of alcoholism, glycogen storage disease, high fat/low carbohydrate diets, pregnancy, alkalosis, ingestion of isopropyl alcohol, and salicylate poisoning.
