Total triiodothyronine ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure to analyse total T3 (triiodothyronine) levels in human serum and plasma samples. This assay has a detectable sensitivity limit of < 0.1 ng/ml.
Thyroid hormones are essential regulators which are known to influence cellular metabolism, growth, differentiation and overall general hormone balance. The measurement of total T3 is seen as a valuable marker in the diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction (hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism). An increase in the levels of T3 without any elevation in T4 is a frequent forerunner of recurrent thyrotoxicosis in patients that were treated previously. The development of monospecific antiserum and discovery of specific blocking agents to the T3 binding serum proteins has contributed to the significant improvement in total T3 ELISA kit methodology over the last few decades.
This current total triiodothyronine ELISA kit has a minimum detectable sensitivity concentration of < 0.1 ng/ml.
