      Product Description
      • AutoPure Homocysteine is a reagent kit for quantitative determination of L homocysteine in human serum and plasma on automated clinical chemistry analyzers.
      • AutoPure Homocysteine is a ready to use, two liquid reagent system.
      • With AutoPure Homocysteine, the assay is linear up to 50 pmo1/1.
      AutoPure Homocysteine assay is based on the measurement of co  substrate conversion product.

      Oxidized Homocysteine from the sample is reduced to free Homocysteine which then reacts with SAM to form methionine and SAH. SAH is assessed by coupled enzyme reactions where in adenosine is formed. The adenosine formed is hydrolyzed into inosine and ammonia which reacts with glutamate dehydrogenase with concomitant conversions of NADH to NAD*. The concentration of Homocysteine is proportional to the amount of NADH converted to NAD+ and is measured as change in absorbance at 340 nm.

       Specimen Collection & Preservation

       Collect sample using standard sampling tube. Fresh serum and EDTA/heparinised plasma are the specimens of choice.

      Haemolysed, turbid or severely lipemic specimens are not recommended for this assay.

      After separation of plasma from cells, Homocysteine is stable for at least 4 days at room temperature and for 2 weeks at 2 - 8 C.


      Fully automated system automatically calculates the homocysteine concentration of each sample

      Application Sheet

      Refer to application sheet for details. For additional system applications, contact our local Accurex representative.


      For calibration, it is recommended to use AutoPure Homocysteine calibrator from Accurex Biomedical Pvt. Ltd. Other commercially available homocysteine calibrators have not been tested with this assay and cannot be supported by Accurex. Refer to the AutoPure Homocysteine calibrator kit package insert for a description of assignment procedures and instructions. Calibration materials have concentrations around medical decision level.

      Calibration frequency

      The calibration curve is stable for 11 days. Re - calibration is recommended


      • Whenever the reagent lot is changed.
      • As per the requirement of quality control procedures.


      Quality Control
      Each batch of AutoPure Homocysteine is assayed with multiple quality control sera prior to release.
      To ensure adequate quality control, it is recommended that the laboratory should use a normal and abnormal commercial reference control serum. It should be realized that the use of quality control material checks both the reagent and instrument functions together.
      If the control values fall outside the specified limits, each of the below criteria should be cross - checked and corrected:
      • Proper instrument function   wavelength setting, light source and temperature control.
      • Cleanliness of probes and cuvettes.
      • Bacterial contamination of wash water used by the instrument.
      • Expiry date of the reagent kit.

      Expected Values

      Serum/Plasma Homocysteine : < 15 pmo1/1


      Expected range varies from population to population. It is therefore recommended that each laboratory should establish its own normal range. For diagnostic purposes, the homocysteine results should always be assessed in conjunction with the patient's medical history, clinical examinations and other findings.

       Performance Characteristics Linearity

      With AutoPure Homocysteine, the assay is linear up to 50 pmo1/1. Determine samples with higher concentrations via the rerun function. On analyzers without rerun function, manually dilute the sample with higher concentrations using distilled /deionized water (e.g. 1 +4). Multiply the result by the appropriate dilution factor (e.g. 5).


      There is no significant interference from samples containing up to 500 mg/dl of haemoglobin, 40 mg/dl of bilirubin, 1000 mg/dl of triglycerides, 10 mM ascorbic acid and 100 pM of cystathionine.


      Reproducibility was determined using three levels of pooled human sera. The within run and between run reproducibility was determined as shown below :
