Intended Use

Clinical Significance

Albumin is the most abundant serum protein representing 55 -65% of the total protein. It is synthesised in the liver and has a half-life of 2 to 3 weeks.

 

The main biological functions of albumin are to maintain the water balance in serum and plasma and to transport and store a wide variety of ligands e.g. fatty acids, calcium, bilirubin and hormones such as thyroxine. Albumin also provides an endogenous source of amino acids.

 

Albumin measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous diseases involving primarily the liver or kidneys.
