Albumin Blood Test
Albumin Blood Test, Albumin protein is made in the liver and about 60% of the total serum protein is albumin. Albumin controls the amount of water in the blood. This process is done through atmospheric pressure. In case of a lack of albumin protein, water control is impaired and it starts to leave the blood vessels and accumulate under the skin and the body starts to swell. Albumin protein acts as a transporter for many hormones, calcium, magnesium, and drugs in the blood.

|Distal Water||2o ul||—||—||—|
|Standard 30 g/l||—||20 ul||—||—|
|Control Serum||—||—||20 ul||—|
