Biotinidase Reagent Kit



BR071190 Biotinidase Reagent Kit Colorimetric 4800 test

This kit is intended for the semi-quantitative determination of biotinidase activity in blood specimens dried on filter paper as an aid in screening newborns for biotinidase deficiency. Currently, all newborn screening programs in the United States and more than 30 other countries screen their newborns for biotinidase deficiency. The screening method used by almost all programs is based on a colorimetric assay of biotinidase activity in dried blood spots, although states have individually established their own screening cutoffs and rescreening or follow-up protocols.
