Reagents, Immunoassay, Therapeutic Drug, Cardiovascular, Digitoxin
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum, plasma) to measure levels of digitoxin (a cardiac glycoside sometimes used in place of digoxin; digitoxin is a digitalis medicine that is intended to be used to improve the strength and efficiency of the heart or as an antiarrhythmic agent to control the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat) present in the sample. These reagents are used to measure digitoxin levels in patients undergoing treatment, to monitor the adequacy of therapy, and to diagnose a drug overdose or drug-related toxicity.
