Triglycerides

28 JANUARY 2021

Triglycerides are the most important molecule for our organism at the level of storing energy in the form of fat. They are stored in adipose tissue cells and are comprised by the union of three fatty acids with one glycerol (glycerine) molecule.

They can come from fatty acids that we absorb from foods through the intestine (exogen), or by synthesised in the liver (endogens).

It is recommended to maintain triglyceride levels under control to avoid pathologies such as pancreatitis and cardiovascular diseases. Too-high levels are directly related to residual lipid risk.

This parameter has been key in the history of SPINREACT. It was one of the first reagents available on the list of products offered by the company in the first three years of its history. In that time, the method involved a chemical-organic reaction based on the partition of solvents (saponification-oxidation). The kit had 7 components and procedure, which was entirely manual, required incubation at 56ºC and an average time of 45 minutes per determination.

The introduction of enzyme reactions revolutionised this parameter and many others. The speed of the company to adapt to the change, giving its customers access to the latest technology, allowed it to make a qualitative and quantitative leap. Having the triglyceride reagent in liquid and lyophilised form made it possible to reduce the reaction time to 5 minutes per determination and led to the signing of multinational agreements that gave SPINREACT a big push in its development.

Today, this enzyme method is used widely by the different brands on the market. Thanks to its experience, SPINREACT has a reagent with important advantages compared to the competition, which has allowed it to establish and consolidate itself in several countries. In markets with a population with high triglyceride levels, whether they are endogenous or induced by diet, they need a reagent with a high level of linearity to ensure correct diagnosis and treatment for patients.

Today, across everything we offer, triglycerides are the parameter that sells most in the biochemical line and are in the company’s TOP 5. They are undoubtedly one of the pillars on which Spinreact’s success is built.
