Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is a membrane-bound metalloenzyme that consists of a group of isoenzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis of organic phosphate esters, optimally at alkaline pH. Cell membranes of many cell types have ALP activity; however, only a few produce sufficient ALP to affect serum activity. The physiologic roles of ALP have not been clearly defined, and may vary according to tissue. Alkaline phosphatase activity is present in the liver (l-ALP), bone (b-ALP), kidney (k-ALP), small intestine, and other organs of the body, and placenta in pregnancy. In sera of healthy adults, ALP activity originates mainly in the liver, with most of the rest coming from the skeleton.

 

ALP is increased in metabolic bone diseases, including osteoporosis, osteomalacia and rickets, hyperparathyroidism, renal osteodystrophy, and thyrotoxicosis, and in individuals with acromegaly, bone metastases, and other disorders with increased bone formation. In patients with impaired renal function, ALP is the preferred marker for bone turnover because its clearance does not depend on glomerular filtration. Total ALP activity is markedly increased in Paget’s disease and provides the highest clinical sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis and monitoring of Paget’s disease of bone (PDB).

 

Product Features:

  • DEA buffer based-DGKC method.
  • Both ready to use reagents as well as lyophilized reagents for different customers’ choice.
  • Programmable on most of the fully automated biochemistry analyzers
  • Longer working reagent stability ≥ 30 days at 2-8°C. / 10 days at R.T, making it ideal for semiautomatic instrument users.
  • Longer working reagent stability ≥ 21 days at 2-8°C. / 5 days at R.T, making it more suitable for semiautomatic instrument users with very less workload (prdt. code 30130 and 30131)
  • Wide AMR: ranging 1 and 1200iU/L.
  • A good correlation with other brands as well as IFCC method.
