Glucose Analysis

Glucose analysis is one of the many Diagnostic Sample Analysis services TGA Sciences, Inc. provides to the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Academic communities. We offer glucose analysis of generated animal samples using the HESKA Veterinary System.

Glucose analysis determines the amount of glucose present in the blood. Mammals maintain a normal blood glucose level at a reference range between about 3.6 and 5.8 mM (mmol/L). Blood glucose levels outside the normal range may be an indicator of a medical condition. For example, diabetes mellitus is characterized by a persistently high level of blood glucose. Temporary elevation of blood glucose level can result from stress such as trauma, stroke, or myocardial infarction. Furthermore, certain drugs can increase or decrease glucose levels.
