SGPT (ALT) kit MODIFIED IFCC Method), is supplied by BHAT BIO-TECH.It isused for the quantitative determination of SGPT in human serum. SGPTis found in a variety of tissues but is mainly found in the liver. Increased levels are found in hepatitis, cirrhosis, obstructive jaundice and other hepatic diseases. Slight elevation of the enzymes is also seen in myocardial infarction. SGPT (ALT) catalyzes the transfer of amino group between LAlanine and a-Ketoglutarate to form Pyruvate and Glutamate. The Pyruvate formed reacts with NADH in the presence of Lactate Dehydrogenase to form NAD. The rate of oxidation of NADH to NAD is measured as a decrease in absorbance which is proportional to the SGPT(ALT) activity in the sample. SGPT reagents are stable at 2-8 C until the expiry date states on the label.
