Intended Use
For the quantitative determination of creatine kinase activity in serum, using the Biolis 24i analyzers.
Serum creatinine kinase (CK) levels have proven valuable in the assessment of cardiac and skeletal muscle diseases, including myocardial infarction and muscular dystrophy. Determination of creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes provides a definitive diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.

The kinetic procedure presented is a modification of Szasz of the Rosalki technique, which optimizes the reaction by reactivation of CK activity with N-actyl-L-cysteine (NAC).

CK specifically catalyzes the transphosphorylation of ADP to ATP. Through a series of coupled enzymatic reactions, NADPH is produced at a rate directly proportional to the CK activity. The method determines the NADPH absorbance increase per min at 340 nm.
