Reagents, Immunoassay, Therapeutic Drug, Cardiovascular, Disopyramide
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum, urine) to measure levels of disopyramide (a class I antiarrhythmic agent [one that interferes directly with the depolarization of the cardiac membrane and thus serves as a membrane-stabilizing agent] with a depressant action on the heart similar to that of guanidine) present in the sample. These reagents are used in tests intended to monitor disopyramide phosphate levels in patients undergoing treatment to determine the adequacy of therapy, and to diagnose drug overdose or drug-related toxicity.
