Folate supplementation has escalated over recent years with the knowledge of its many benefits. As one of the B vitamins, folate, or Vitamin B9, is involved in many bodily functions and deficiency can cause disease in not only the elderly, but infants too. Folate deficiency is associated with megaloblastic anaemia, neural tube defects, and cardiovascular diseases. Folate plays an important role in brain development and therefore is vital during growth.
The Biorex Diagnostics Folate kit is intended for use in the quantitative determination of folate concentrations in human serum by a microplate enzyme immunoassay, colorimetric.
