IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Therapeutic Drug, Anticonvulsant, Carbamazepine, Free
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to measure levels of free carbamazepine, the bioactive component of carbamazepine, in the patient sample. Carbamazepine is an anticonvulsant and antineuralgic drug, but only free carbamazepine and its metabolite carbamazepine-10, 11-epoxide are bioactive. Reagents for measuring levels of free carbamazepine can be used in tests intended to monitor drug levels in patients under treatment, either to determine the adequacy of drug treatment or diagnose a drug overdose or drug-related toxicity.
