Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G-6-PD), Quantitative, Erythrocytes
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) in a hemolysate catalyzes the oxidation of glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phosphogluconate. Concomitantly, icotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) is changed to its reduced form (NADPH), a reaction measured spectrophotometrically.(Beutler E: Red Cell Metabolism: A Manual of Biochemical Methods. Third edition. New York, Grune and Stratton, 1984, pp 68-71)

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 Saturday
