Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC)

Biomarker Therapeutic Areas: 
Biomarker Matrices: 

Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) is the measure of the maximum amount of iron needed to saturate blood transferrin, the main iron-transport protein. TIBC is used as an indirect measurement of transferrin concentrations (Hawkins, 2007; Yamanishi et al., 2003). Patients having iron deficiency display low blood levels of iron but elevated levels of TIBC.

Bioclinica Lab employs a colorimetric method performed in an automated platform for the measurement of TIBC in human serum.
