Magnesium measurements are clinically important. Magnesium, along with potassium, is the most abundant intracellular cation. Magnesium is a required coenzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Decreased magnesium concentrations, hypomagnesia, may cause tremors, muscle irritability, increased blood pressure and heart rate. Elevated magnesium concentrations, hypermagnesia, may lead to impaired respiration, coma, and cardiac arrest if left uncorrected.
Features and Benefits
- For the quantitative measurement of magnesium.
- One part, stable liquid. Easy to use, no additional preparation required.
- Wide linear range. Reduces repeat testing.
- No significant interference displayed from samples with elevated levels of hemolysis, icterus or ascorbic acid. Reduces need for sample dilutions.
- Applicable to multiple instrument platforms. Laboratory flexibility.
