Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Galactokinase is determined by using RBCs (as is GALT). Radiolabeled galactose is incubated in the appropriate buffer with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and red cell lysate. Galactose-1-phosphate (the product of the action of galactokinase on galactose and ATP) is quantitated after it is bound to ion-exchange chromatography paper.(Beutler E, Paniker NV,Trinidad F: The assay of red cell galactokinase. Biochem Med 1971;5:325-332)

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.
