Beta-Hydroxybutyrate / B-HB

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 BHB 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 1,500 hospitals worldwide and can be run on most open channel chemistry analyzers.

Now validated for use on QuidelOrtho Vitros® 4600 Chemistry System and Vitros® 5600 Integrated System.
