Reagents, Clinical Chemistry, Hepatic Function, Bile Acid
Definition : Clinical chemistry reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative chemical analysis of body fluids (typically in serum) to measure the level of a single bile acid or total bile acid. Measurement of the level of bile acid in serum is useful to determine ileal dysfunction; increased levels in blood are common in disturbances of the hepatic excretory function and other liver diseases (e.g., cirrhosis).
