Clinical relevance

CDT (carbohydrate-deficient transferrin) is a lab marker showing the highest specificity for chronic alcohol abuse. CDT values increase significantly with the daily intake of more than 60 g ethanol (the equivalent of 0.75 l wine) per day over a period of two weeks. The values return to normal within two weeks in case of alcohol abstention. This makes CDT an excellent parameter for continuous monitoring in withdrawal programmes or for assessments in forensic or occupational medicine.

Unlike other biochemical parameters like γ-GT or MCV, liver diseases will not cause any false-positive results.

 

Product advantages

  • Very easy sample preparation with pre-mixed tubes
  • Only one pipetting step required
  • Detection of genetic variants

 

This Chromsystems kit allows for the fast and reliable measurement of CDT in serum using HPLC and UV detection. Sample preparation with premixed tubes is performed in a single pipetting step, making it fast and convenient.

The CDT is displayed as an area percentage of total transferrin, so it remains unaffected by fluctuations in the concentration of transferrin in serum. Optimised chromatographic separation of transferrin isoforms also allows for the reliable detection of known genetic variants.

A manual method with automated sample preparation is also available as an alternative for greater sample throughput.
