NGAL andThe NGAL Test

NGAL is a novel biomarker for diagnosing acute kidney injury (AKI). The key advantage of NGAL is that it responds earlier than other renal status markers and shows a proportionate response to injury.

The NGAL Testwill be available for a wide range of clinical chemistry analyzers and will be launched in the beginning of 2011.The NGAL Testwill be able to determine NGAL levels in both urine and plasma within a standard routine timeframe.
