Total Bile Acids (TBA) test

Liver monitoring

About the parameter

Bile acids are compounds that are produced in the liver and accumulated in the gall bladder. They facilitate the digestion of food, notably fat. After food is consumed, a signal is sent to the gall bladder to forward bile acids into the small intestine. There they are mixed with the food and break down fats into smaller particles, making for an easier absorption.

Eurolyser’s Total Bile Acids assay was specifically developed to effectively determine if the liver is working properly, to identify liver disease and to monitor response to treatment. The assay is based on the principle that a healthy liver can “recycle” bile acids, while a damaged or defective liver cannot.
