|Product name||CheKine™ Micro Serum Potassium (K+) Assay Kit|
|Applications notes||The kit provides a simple method for detecting Potassium (K+) in serum samples. In the assay, potassium ions (K+) react with sodium tetraphenylborate to form potassium tetraphenylborate which is insoluble in water and the turbidity produced is proportional to the potassium concentration within a certain range. So the serum potassium concentration can be determined by measuring its turbidity.|
|Kit components||• Extraction Buffer
• Reagent I
• Reagent II
• Reagent III
|Features & Benefits||• Determination of K+ content in serum samples.
• Detailed sample preparation and result calculation methods are provided.
• Simple operation steps.
|Usage notes||• Do not mix or substitute reagents or materials from other kit lots or vendors.

|Background||Potassium (K+) plays an important role in maintaining the body's normal osmotic pressure and acid-base balance. In addition, potassium participates in sugar and protein metabolism, and ensures the normal function of neuromuscular. When serum potassium is higher than 5.5 mmol/L, it is called hyperkalemia. Hyperkalemia can increase nerve and muscle irritability and reduce myocardial irritability which can lead to bradycardia. When serum potassium exceeds 10 mmol/L, ventricular fibrillation may occurs and even the heart stops beating during diastole. When serum potassium is lower than 3.5 mmol/L, it is called hypokalemia. Hypokalemia can cause muscle weakness (even muscle flaccid paralysis) and increase myocardial irritability. In this case, tachycardia and arrhythmia may occur, even the heart stops beating during systole. Therefore, serum potassium is a commonly used biochemical indicator.|

1.The species of antibody reactivity should be the sample species that can be matched normally after Abbkine R&D experts have passed strict scientific verification. If your sample is not within the range of reactivity, in order to improve the efficiency and results of your experiment, it is not suggested to try other species. Otherwise, it may lead to sample mismatch and affect the effect of your experiment.
2.Please aliquot the antibody received as soon as possible and store it at -20℃, avoid repeated freezing and thawing, and use it within one year.
