Sample typeSerum, Plasma
Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC) and Serum Iron Assay Kit (ab239715) provides a simple, sensitive, and high-throughput adaptable approach to detect physiological Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) and Serum iron. Those values indicate the requisite iron for transferrin saturation and Serum Iron respectively. Those measurements can be used to detect and monitor transferrin saturation and also iron-deficiency anemia and chronic inflammatory diseases.
This product is manufactured by BioVision, an Abcam company and was previously called K392 Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC) and Serum Iron Assay Kit (Colorimetric). K392-100 is the same size as the 100 test size of ab239715.

RelevanceIron is essential to nearly all known organisms. It is generally stored in the centre of metalloproteins, in the heme complex, and in oxygen carrier proteins. Inorganic iron also contributes to redox reactions in the iron-sulfur clusters of many enzymes, such as nitrogenase and hydrogenase.
