What is Microalbumin assay used for?

Albumin is one of the major plasma proteins, and is usually present in very low concentration in urine. Damage to the glomerular basement membrane can alter its permeability and albumin is then able to enter the urine. Sustained elevations of urinary albumin concentrations are called Microalbuminuria.

The Randox Microalbumin assay is an excellent marker of kidney disease and can identify individuals with diabetic nephropathy approximately 5-10 years earlier than proteinuria tests reducing the incidence of end stage renal disease. As such the American Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK recommend all diabetics are screened for microalbuminuria on a yearly basis
