1-b) A/G ratio (Ratio of Albumin to Globulin)

Blood serum contains two major protein groups: albumin and globulin. The ratio of albumin to globulin (A/G ratio) is calculated from values obtained by direct measurement of total protein and albumin. It represents the relative amounts of albumin and globulins. This kit is able to measure total protein in mouse and human serum by the Biuret method and albumin by the BCG (Bromocresol green) method, and furthermore to calculate A/G ratio.


(1) Sensitivity (Absorbance):
Purified water: 0.120 ~ 0.220 / Std Serum (5.0 g/dL Alb): 0.480 ~ 0.810
(2) Specificity (albumin concentration):
a known concentration of control serum: within ±12%

Total Protein

(1) Sensitivity (Absorbance):
Purified water: 0.050 ~ 0.100 / Std Serum (8.0g/dL Total protein): 0.300 ~ 0.500
(2) Specificity (protein concentration)
a known concentration of control serum: within ±10%
