Technical Data
Hemoglobin A1C
Hemoglobin is composed of one globin plus four hemes; heme consists of protoporphyrin IX and ferrous iron. The iron content of human hemoglobin is 0.338% which gives a minimal molecular weight of 16,520; however, ultracentrifugal and osmotic pressure measurements indicate an actual molecular weight four times the minimum molecular weight.
Hemoglobin A1C, also known as glycated hemoglobin or glycosylated hemoglobin, indicates a patient's blood sugar control over the last 2-3 months. A1C is formed when glucose in the blood binds irreversibly to hemoglobin to form a stable glycated hemoglobin complex. Since the normal life span of red blood cells is 90-120 days, the A1C will only be eliminated when the red cells are replaced; A1C values are directly proportional to the concentration of glucose in the blood over the full life span of the red blood cells.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications have not been tested.
