Biomarker profiles

  • Iron
Total Iron-Binding Capacity (TIBC)
Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) measure the blood’s ability to attach itself to iron and transport it around the body. If you have an iron deficiency (a lack of iron in your blood), your iron levels will be low but you TIBC will be high. If you have too much iron, your iron levels will be high but your TIBC will be low or normal.
Ferritin
Ferritin is a blood protein that contains iron. This measurement can help you to understand how much iron your body stores. If your blood ferritin levels are low, it can indicate your body’s iron stores are low and you have iron deficiency.
Iron
Iron is a essential component of hemoglobin formation and oxygen transport. The body requires iron for the synthesis of its oxygen transport proteins, in particular hemoglobin and myoglobin.
Unsaturated Iron binding capacity (UIBC)
The unsaturated iron-binding capacity (UIBC) is
Transferrin Saturation
Transferrin is made in the liver and is the major protein in the blood which binds to iron and transports it round the body. This test measures how much this protein is ‘saturated’ by iron.
