Awareness of lack of standardization among test methods is important, as urine albumin test results may affect clinical practice.
Serum albumin test was based on its quantitative binding to the indicator 3, 3, 5, 5-tetrabromo-m cresol sulphonephthalein (Bromocresol BCG).
However, while we are pleased to see a small rise in take-up for some of the key tests across all age groups, such as blood pressure, cholesterol and HbA1c, we have also seen an eight per cent drop in the number of people with Type 1 diabetes getting their urine albumin test and a drop of 9.
Methods employed include the 24-hour urine albumin test, the overnight urine albumin test (these are timed collections) and the spot urine test for albumin and/or albumin/creatinine ratio (ACE) (these are early-morning or random urine tests).
In addition, the glycated albumin test serves as an intermediate term indicator of average blood glucose for the past 2 to 3 weeks, which closes the existing information gap between daily blood glucose testing and the 2-to 3-month snapshot provided by HbAlc testing.

The High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) equipment is specifically designed to work with the FDA-cleared Accumin total intact albumin test to measure urinary albumin, a critical indicator of potential kidney disease.
today announced that a re-analysis of more than 6,000 patient samples, including 496 diabetic patients, from the AusDiab (Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle) study, originally completed in 2001, demonstrates that the Accumin(TM) total intact albumin test detected significantly more urinary albumin than a widely used conventional urine test.
