Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) (GOT), Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is measured by a coupled enzyme kinetic method where the rate of decrease of NADH, determined at 340 nm, is directly proportional to the AST activity.(Package insert: Roche AST reagent, Indianapolis, IN, January 2000)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed.
