Selling unit: per 100ml
Common name: γ-glutamyl transferase (GGT) assay kit (IFCC rate method)
English name: GGT Reagent Kit (IFCC Kinetic Method)
3:1,4:1,5:1 can be used, commonly used ratio 4:1.
This kit is used to determine the amount of GGT in human serum or plasma.
GGT is found in the kidney, pancreas, liver and prostate. GGT in the serum mainly originates from the liver and biliary system, therefore, its activity can be increased when there are liver and biliary diseases or injuries, such as obstructive jaundice, cholangitis and cholecystitis. The clinical diagnostic methods of GGT assay kits are mainly the rate method.
The method recommended by the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) was used. GGT in the sample catalyzed the transfer of glutamyl from the soluble substrate (L-γ-glutamyl-3-carboxy-4-nitroaniline sodium salt) to glycylglycine to form L-γ-glutamylglycine and yellow 5-amino-2-nitrobenzoate, which caused an increase in absorbance at 405 nm, and the reaction rate of the increase in absorbance was monitored continuously at 404 nm, and the reaction rate was The rate of increase in absorbance at 404 nm was monitored continuously and was proportional to the amount of GGT in the sample.

Hitachi 7180/7600; Olympus AU680/2700; Toshiba TBA120; Myriad BS2000M/480; Siemens ADVIA 1800/2400 series automatic biochemical analyzers.
Fresh serum or plasma (heparin or EDTA anticoagulation), serum specimens were stored at 4°C for one week to stabilize.
- Reagent preparation: liquid reagents are ready to use out of the bottle.
- test conditions: (different test instruments can be requested according to the different parameters on the machine)
*Reagents and sample volumes can be increased or decreased in proportion to the requirements of different biochemical analyzers.
- Calibration procedure.
Randox calibration sera are recommended. γ-glutamyl-3 carboxy-4-nitroaniline (IFCC) 37°C is the method of choice for Randox calibration sera.
- QC control procedures.
It is recommended that each laboratory establish its own quality control system and select appropriate quality control products for quality control. The measured values of QC products should be within the specified range. If outside the specified range, it is necessary to take appropriate measures or contact the manufacturer.
Sample concentration = (sample ΔA /min) / (standard ΔA /min) × standard concentration
Positive Judgment Value Or Reference Interval
Male: 11 to 50 U/L
Female: 7 to 32 U/L
It is recommended that each laboratory establish its own reference range of normal values.
Interpretation Of Test Results
The determination of GGT in serum or plasma is only one of the indicators used by the clinician to make a diagnosis of the patient. The clinician must also make a comprehensive judgment based on the patient’s physical symptoms, medical history, and other diagnostic items and diagnostic tools.
Limitations Of The Test Method
Ascorbic acid ≤ 30 mg/dL, bilirubin ≤ 40 mg/dL, hemoglobin ≤ 400 mg/dL, and celiac disease ≤ 500 mg/dL did not interfere with the determination.
