About the parameter
The glutamate dehydrogenase (GLDH) test measures the liver-specific enzyme GLDH, which is primarily found in the mitochondria of centrolobular hepatocytes. GLDH particularly increases in hypoxic conditions of the liver, as well as in cases of acute hepatic necrosis.
An increased release of GLDH from hepatocytes can further be observed in e.g. inflammatory, neoplastic, or infectious diseases of the liver, as well as in all disorders leading to liver cell degeneration.
Use 100 µl lithium heparin plasma or serum samples.
In case samples need to be kept, store at a dark place only!
Method / Measurement range
Glutamate dehydrogenase catalyzes the reduction of oxolutarat
and at the same time the oxidation of NADH to NAD.
Serum / Plasma:
6 – 120 U/L (Lot dependent)
The test takes approximately 6 minutes.
