Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Saccharide, Fructose
Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative chemical analysis of body fluids (typically urine or serum) to determine the level of fructose, a monosaccharide. The presence of fructose in urine is called fructosuria; the presence of fructose in blood is called fructosemia. Fructosuria may be caused by fructose intolerance, a hereditary disorder characterized by hypoglycemia that, if left untreated, may cause death.
