ZINC, SERUM / PLASMA
`1800

Zinc is an essential element which acts as a critical co-factor in various enzyme systems and is required for active wound healing. Zinc deficiency occurs due to lack of dietary absorption or loss after absorption. Zinc excess is not a major clinical concern. The only known effect of excessive zinc ingestion is interference with copper absorption leading to hypocupremia. This assay helps to detect zinc deficiency. Elevated serum zinc is of minimal clinical interest.
