Beta-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor® Assay (BHB)
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor® Assay is a qualitative, quick and simple test for ketosis
The Stanbio Chemistry LiquiColor® Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) reagent is used to detect ketones to identify patients suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis, amongst many other clinical applications.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is the most predominate ketone present during DKA and trends with a patient’s clinical status. Since the Beta-Hydroxybutyrate assay is quantitative it can be used for monitoring ketosis to resolution, making it the superior ketone test.
Our Beta-Hydroxybutyrate reagent is used by over 1,100 hospitals in the USA and can be run on an open channel of a laboratory analyzer.
In addition, can be used to clinically diagnose and monitor the disease status or severity of alcoholism, glycogen storage disease, high fat/low carbohydrate diets, pregnancy, alkalosis, ingestion of isopropyl alcohol, and salicylate poisoning.
- Earlier detection of clinically significant ketosis
- Improved ER and CDU throughput and efficiency
- Greater precision and sensitivity
- Results captured in your LIS
