Iron moves through the blood attached to a protein called transferrin. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The TIBC is the total iron binding capacity.
( Log Out / Instructions for Use Calibrators, Controls, UIBC FS (Unsaturated iron binding capacity). ( Log Out / Usually about one third of the transferrin is being used to transport iron. Normally, only about one third of the iron binding sites of Transferrin are occupied by Fe (III); therefore, there is considerable reserve iron binding capacity. Alpha-1-Antitrypsin, Serum, Ammonia, Angiotensin-1-Converting Enzyme, Beta-2 Glycoprotein I Ab, IgA, Bicarbonate (HCO3), Serum, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA), D-Dimer, Ferritin, Ferritin (female range), Fibrinogen Activity, Fibrinogen Antigen, Haemoglobin A1c, Haptoglobin, Iron, IRON (Serum), Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH), Large Unstained Cells (LUC), Large Unstained Cells (Percent), Magnesium, RBC, Nucleated red blood cell (NRBC), Plateletcrit (PCT), Reticulocyte Count, Thrombocytes, Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), Transferrin, Transferrin saturation (Iron Saturation), UIBC. TIBC is an indirect method to know the transferrin present in the blood. One or more tests may be ordered when there are signs of anemia, especially when a comprehensive blood count is performed and shows red blood cells that are microcytic and hypochromic and the hemoglobin and hematocrit levels are low. Unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC) is a blood test most frequently used along with a serum iron test and a total iron-binding capacity test (TIBC) to evaluate people suspected of having either iron deficiency or iron overload. Usually about one third of the transferrin is being used to transport iron. Learn how your comment data is processed.
