Order Name:
NGAL (urine) 

 
 
Clinical Information:
Urine NGAL assay utilizes microparticles coated with monoclonal antibody for the detection of NGAL. Studies have shown that urinary NGAL is an early marker of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in a wide variety of settings. NGAL is one of the earliest proteins induced in the kidney after ischemic or nephrotoxic insult; studies have demonstrated elevated urine NGAL levels within two hours of insult. Early detection of NGAL may be used as an aid in the diagnosis of AKI and patient management.
