Product Description

The LKM-1 (Liver Kidney Microsomes type 1) test is a chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA), for use on IDS automated analyzers. It is used for the quantitative determination of specific IgG class antibodies directed against Liver Kidney Microsomes type 1, in human samples of serum or plasma (EDTA and Sodium Citrate).
