IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Therapeutic Drug, Antibiotic, Gentamicin
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum, plasma) to measure levels of gentamicin, an aminoglycoside bactericidal agent, present in the sample. Gentamicin is used in the treatment of a wide variety of aerobic gram-negative bacteria and also for some gram-positive bacteria. Reagents for gentamicin drug level measurement are used to monitor drug levels in patients undergoing treatment, either to determine the adequacy of drug treatment or to diagnose a drug overdose or drug-related toxicity. Typical reference levels in blood, in micrograms per milliliter, are peak 5 to 8, predose (trough) 1 to 2, and toxic more than 10.
