Total Protein

Intended Use:

Test for estimation of Total protein  in serum / plasma using BEIRUT method .


A total protein test measures the total amount of protein in the blood. It also measures the amounts of two major groups of proteins in the blood: albumin and globulin. Increased levels of Total Protein are found in dehydration, multiple myeloma and chronic liver diseases. Decreased levels are found in renal diseases and terminal liver failure. Total Protein can be estimated in serum / plasma using Biuret method.
