Novel technology for the diagnosis and monitoring
of iron toxicity, iron overload, in body fluids

Measuring Non-Transferrin Bound Iron (NTBI)
& Labile Plasma Iron (LPI)

Aferrix has developed and markets novel diagnostic tools for tailoring
chelation therapy to the individual patient needs

Repeated FeROS™ eLPI measurements provide information about the NTBI present in the serum/plasma. Measurements are applicable for non-chelated pateitns.

Repeated FeROS™ LPI measurements provide a novel monitoring tool of monitoring patients who are regularly transfused and cherlated and a convenient index of:

  • Chelation therapy
  • Dosage accuracy
  • Patient compliance
  • Safety of IV Iron products

FeROS™ eLPI - for the measurement the total Non-Transferrin Bound Iron (NTBI)
Catalog # TSE904

FeROS™ LPI - for the measurement of Labile Plasma Iron (LPI), a fraction of NTBI that is redox active and chelatable
Catalog # TSL902

The use of the kit requires the use a Flurometer with the following capabilities:

  1. Excitation/emission filters for fluorescein
  2. Temperature control
  3. Kinetic measurement

There are 44 measurements in a kit, 2 plates each for 22 measurements

Samples may also be sent to Aferrix Service Laboratory, please contact us for more details
