Acid-Base Balance testing is one of the many laboratory services TGA Sciences provides to the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Academic communities.
The body’s balance between acidity and alkalinity is referred to as acid-base balance. The acidity or alkalinity of any solution, including blood, is indicated on the pH scale. Body acidity increases when the level of acidic compounds in the body rises (through increased intake or production, or decreased elimination) or when the level of basic (alkaline) compounds in the body falls (through decreased intake or production or increased elimination). Body alkalinity increases with the reverse of these processes.
