Albumin in Urine/CSF FS (Microalbumin)

Product number: 1 0242


Albumin is an important binding and transport protein for various substances in plasma and the main contributor to the plasma osmotic pressure. Measurement of albumin in serum is used for diagnosis and monitoring of liver diseases, e.g. liver cirrhosis. Furthermore, albumin levels indicate the health and nutritional status of an individual and, therefore, are used for detecting malnutrition and for prognosis in elderly hospitalized patients.

Increased in

  • Dehydration

Decreased in

  • Insulinoma
  • Adrenal cortex insufficiency
  • Hypopituitarism
  • Extra – pancreatic neoplasm
  • Severe liver disease
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Drugs, eg. sulfonylureas, salicylates, phenformin, insulin, etc.


Ready to use reagent.

Proline Albumin in Urine/CSF FS comes in a liquid format which provides convenience for users as no reconstitution is required which helps reduce the risk of misdiagnosis.

Open system reagent, compatible with a wide range of instruments.

Proline Albumin in Urine/CSF FS reagent is suitable for various third party analyzers such as Abbott, Advia, Cobas, Hitachi, Olympus, Response, TokyoBoeki and Beckman Coulter. Please contact our technical support at for further compatibility information on other types of analyzers.

Reference Range


Albumin excretion rate in urine <30 mg/24h
Albumin concentration (early morning urine) <30 mg/L
Albumin/creatinine (first morning urine) <30 mg/g creatinine

Each laboratory should check whether the reference range can be calculated for its patient population and determine its own reference range if necessary.

For diagnostic purposes, outcomes should always be assessed against the patient's medical history, clinical examination, and other findings.
