Intended Use

For the in vitro quantitative measurement of glucose in serum using the Mindray BS-480 analyzer.


Glucose is phosphorylated by hexokinase (HK) in the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and magnesium to form glucose-6-phosphate (G-6-P) and adenosine diphosphate (ADP). G-6-P is then oxidized by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH) in the presence of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) producing 6-phosphogluconate and NADH. The formation of NADH causes increase in absorbance at 340 nm which is directly proportional the concentration of glucose in the sample.
