IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Vitamin, Folate

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically plasma) to determine one or more of a family of compounds (folates) generically known as folacin vitamin. Folates are related to the pteroyl glutamic acid. Their principal form in human serum and other body fluids is N5-methyltetrahydrofolate. Folate levels are decreased in anemia characterized by the presence of megaloblasts in the bone marrow (i.e., megaloblastic anemia), in some psychiatric disorders, and during pregnancy. Simultaneous low levels of folate and iron typically occur in malnourished people.
