IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Protein, Transport, Haptoglobin

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of body fluids to determine haptoglobin (HAP), a plasma glycoprotein that irreversibly binds to free hemoglobin. The hemoglobin/haptoglobin complex is removed by the parenchymal cells of the liver, preventing loss of hemoglobin and conserving iron. Haptoglobin is one of the acute-phase reactants. Increased levels of HAP in plasma occur in extensive tissue damage and necrosis; low levels are associated with hemolytic anemia, transfusion reactions, and malaria.
