Urea – Berthelot Liquid Stable is a reagent used in laboratory tests to measure the concentration of urea in a patient’s blood or urine sample. Urea is a waste product produced by the liver as a result of protein metabolism and is excreted by the kidneys. Measuring urea levels can provide valuable information about kidney function and overall metabolic health.
The Urea – Berthelot method is a common technique used to quantify urea concentration. In this method, the Urea – Berthelot Liquid Stable reagent is added to the patient’s sample, which contains urea. The reagent reacts with urea to form a colored complex. The intensity of the color is directly proportional to the concentration of urea in the sample.
The Urea – Berthelot Liquid Stable reagent is designed to provide stable and reliable results over time, ensuring accurate measurements. It is important to use the reagent according to the manufacturer’s instructions and to follow standard laboratory procedures for sample handling and analysis.
Urea testing is commonly performed in clinical settings to evaluate kidney function, monitor patients with kidney disease, assess metabolic health, and diagnose certain medical conditions. Results of urea tests are typically reported as blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or urea concentration in millimoles per liter (mmol/L). Interpretation of the results should be done by a healthcare professional, taking into consideration the patient’s medical history and other relevant factors.
