Product Name

  1. Common name: N-acetyl-β-D-aminoglucosidase (NAG) assay kit (method)
  2. English name: NAG Reagent Kit (MPT Method)

Reagent Ratio

3:1, 4:1, 5:1, common ratio 4:1, other ratios need to be customized

Intended Use

This reagent is used to determine the amount of NAG in urine.

NAG is a macromolecular glycoprotein and an important lysosomal hydrolase that is widely present in the human body. It is not filtered by the glomerulus in the urinary circulation, and when the renal parenchyma is damaged, the urinary NAG is increased, which is considered to be a more sensitive indicator of the early stage of renal damage; NAG can be used for the auxiliary diagnosis of renal tumors. Urinary NAG is reported to be significantly elevated in renal malignancies, and its level is related to the size of the tumor and the degree of renal parenchymal damage. In renal transplant patients, urinary NAG measurement can detect rejection at an early stage, generally 1 to 3 days before the appearance of various clinical indications that have elevated urinary NAG. In diabetic nephropathy, urinary NAG is significantly elevated.

Test Principle

NAG catalyzes the reaction of the substrate MPT-NAG to form N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminide and MPT. MPT increases in absorbance at 340 nm, and the rate of increase in absorbance is determined by the concentration of NAG. The NAG content in the sample can be detected according to the standard curve.

Reagents and sample volumes can be increased or decreased in proportion to the requirements of different biochemical analyzers.

  1. Calibration procedure.

The use of matching calibrators is recommended.

  1. 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.

  1. Calculation.

Sample concentration = (sample ΔA /min) / (standard ΔA /min) × standard concentration

Positive Judgment Value Or Reference Interval


It is recommended that each laboratory establish its own reference range of normal values.

Interpretation Of Test Results

Bilirubin ≤ 40 mg/dL, celiac ≤ 500 mg/dL, hemoglobin ≤ 200 mg/dL, and vitamin C ≤ 20 mg/dL had no effect on the test results.

Limitations Of The Test Method.

The determination of NAG in human serum 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.
