NGAL and The NGAL Test

NGAL is a novel biomarker for diagnosing acute kidney injury (AKI). The key advantage of NGAL is the early response to AKI and the proportionate response to injury.

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