20567-4Ferritin [Mass/volume] in Serum or Plasma by ImmunoassayActive

Part Description

LP15568-6   Ferritin
Ferritin is the major iron storage protein in mammals, and is located primarily in the liver, spleen and bone marrow. Serum ferritin concentrations correlate well with total body iron stores in normal subjects and in patients with iron deficiency or transfusional iron overloads. The measurement of serum ferritin is now considered to be an accurate, quantitative, and convenient method of assessing total body iron stores. Low serum ferritin is diagnostic for iron deficiency anemia, and elevated serum ferritin occurs in the thalassemia but can also occur in other acute and chronic conditions such as hepatic disease, respiratory infections and certain types of malignancy.

Change Reason
The EIA method, which was always intended to cover more than just enzyme-linked immunoassay and whose display name for the long common name has always been Immunoassay, was renamed IA in order to eliminate ambiguity about whether the method has a broader meaning than just enzyme-linked immunoassay. Likewise, EIA.rapid was renamed IA.rapid. These changes were approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
