Product Name

  1. Common name: Pepsinogen I assay kit (latex-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay)
  2. English name: PepsinogenⅠ (PGⅠ) Assay Kit (Immunoturbidimetric Method)

Reagent Ratio


Intended Use

This kit is used for the in vitro quantitative determination of pepsinogen I (PGⅠ) in human serum or plasma.

Pepsinogen (hereinafter referred to as PG) is an inactive precursor of pepsin in gastric juice and is divided into two subgroups, PGI and PGII. PGI is derived from the principal cells of the fundic glands and cervical mucus cells, while PGII is derived from the whole gastric glands (gastric cardia, fundic glands, sinus pylorus) and distal duodenal Brunner’s gland. The prostate and pancreas also produce a small amount of PGⅠ, and the gastric mucosa synthesizes PGII is about 25% of the total. Most of the synthesized PG enters the gastric lumen and is activated into pepsin by the action of acidic gastric juice, and only a small amount (about 1%) of PG enters the blood circulation through the gastric mucosal capillaries.  Progressive decrease in PGI/II ratio was associated with progression of gastric mucosal atrophy.

Test Principle

The PGⅠ in the sample and the antibody adsorbed by the emulsion particles cause an antigen-antibody reaction and form an immune complex. The change of its turbidity was detected at 700nm, and the degree of change was proportional to the content of PGⅠ in the sample.

Main Components

Operation steps.

Pepsinogen I (PGⅠ) Assay Kit & Bulk Reagents

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.

The standard curve is made by the concentration of the standard to the corresponding ΔA. The concentration of PGⅠ in the sample is read out from the standard curve by the ΔA of the sample.


Positive Judgment Value Or Reference Interval

Based on serum PG I and PG I/ I I ratio, the progression of gastric mucosal atrophy was judged as follows.

Pepsinogen I (PGⅠ) Assay Kit & Bulk Reagents

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

Interpretation Of Test Results

Hemoglobin ≤ 500mg/dL, ascorbic acid ≤ 30mg/dL, RF ≤ 520IU/ml, formazine turbidity ≤ 2100, jaundice ≤ 50mg/mL will not interfere with this test.

Limitations Of The Test Method

The determination of PGⅠ in human serum or plasma is only one of the indicators used by clinicians to diagnose patients. Clinicians must also make a comprehensive judgment based on the patient’s physical symptoms, medical history, as well as other diagnostic items and diagnostic tools.
