Randox Acetaminophen Reagent

Key Benefits of the Acetaminophen (Paracetamol) Reagent

Multi-analyte controls and calibrators

Randox offers multi-analyte Acusera controls and calibrators for the Acetaminophen assay as opposed to only single analyte calibrators and controls. This makes the control and calibrators more convenient in terms of consolidation being possible so your results are more accurate.  Randox controls and calibrators may prove more cost effective as separate products do not need to be ordered.  Some controls and calibrators include: Therapeutic Drug Control, Liquid Chemistry Premium Plus, Immunoassay Premium Plus.

Liquid ready-to-use reagent

The Randox Acetaminophen reagent comes in a liquid format which is more convenient as the reagent does not need to be reconstituted which aids in reducing the risk of errors occurring

Wide measuring range

The therapeutic measuring range of Acetaminophen is 10 – 30mg/l.  The Randox Acetaminophen assay offers a wider measuring range of 4.89 – 652mg/l which incorporates the sensitivity and linearity ranges

What is the Acetaminophen assay used for?

What is Acetaminophen?

Acetaminophen is more commonly known as paracetamol which is generally used as a pain-reliever. At therapeutic levels paracetamol does not normally produce any adverse effects, although long-term treatment and prolonged use can result in liver and kidney damage. If this is left untreated or in the event of an overdose, hepatic failure can occur, which can be fatal.  For more information on liver failure as the result of Paracetamol, please click here [external link].

What is the Acetaminophen assay used for?

The Acetaminophen assay is used to determine if an overdose has taken place; to assess the risk of kidney and liver damage to the patient; and to evaluate the type of treatment the patient will require.
