Intended Use

For the in vitro quantitative determination of Triglycerides in serum or plasma using the Mindray BS-480 analyzer.


Serum triglycerides are hydrolyzed to glycerol and free fatty acids by lipase. In the presence of ATP and glycerol kinase (GK), the glycerol is converted to glycerol-1-phosphate. The glycerol-1-phosphate is then oxidized by glycerol phosphate oxidase (GPO) to yield hydrogen peroxide. The condensation of hydrogen peroxide with 4-chlorophenol and 4-aminophenazone (4-AA) in the presence of peroxidase (POD) produces a red colored quinonimine dye which absorbs at, or near 500nm. The intensity of the colored complex formed is directly proportional to the triglycerides concentration of the sample.
