Reagents, Immunoassay, Pregnancy Hormone, Estriol, Unconjugated
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to determine the steroid hormone estriol (E3), produced mostly by the placenta in pregnant women, before it is metabolized (i.e., conjugated) by the liver as glucoronides and sulfates. Maternal serum concentrations of unconjugated estriol are probably a better indicator of fetoplacental function than total estriol.
