Creatinine (2-Amino-1-methyl-2-imidazolin-4-one) is a product of creatine kinase activity in skeletal muscle. Therefore serum creatinine levels are consistent depending on an individual’s muscle amount (1). Serum creatinine is absorbed by the kidneys via glomerular filtration and then excreted. Determining the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using creatinine levels is a useful tool to evaluate renal function in renal diseases and impairments (2-4). In addition, urinary creatinine levels are commonly used as an index of standardization for a variety of other tests (5-7).
Chondrex, Inc provides a creatinine assay kit employing Jaffe Reaction (8). The assay can be performed in 30-minutes with as little as 30 µl of samples, using a standard range of 400 - 6.3 µg/ml. To standardize assay results between samples from human patients and animal models, this kit can be used together with urinary protein assays (cat# 6026 and cat# 9040), albumin detection ELISA kits (Catalog # 3012 and 3020), NTX-I detection ELISA kit (cat# 6040), and CTX-I detection ELISA kit (cat# 6033).
