Lactate Dehydrogenase (LD), Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Lactate and NAD+, in the presence of lactate dehydrogenase (LD), are converted to pyruvate and NADH. The rate at which NADH is formed is determined by an increase in absorbance and is directly proportional to enzyme activity. (Package insert: Roche LDH reagent, Indianapolis, IN, November 1999)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Monday through Sunday; Continuously
