Lee Biosolutions Ferritin Product Line Increased


St. Louis, MO Lee Biosolutions announces that they have had to increase thier capacity for the production of ferritin to meet current worldwide diagnostic and clinical research requirements.

What makes Ferritin such an important protein. Ferritin is normally found inside of cells, with only a small amount in the blood. If a ferritin test reveals that your blood ferritin level is lower than normal, it indicates you have iron deficiency. If a ferritin test shows higher than normal levels, it could indicate that you have a condition that’s characterized by iron overload. A ferritin test could also point to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory conditions, malnutrition or hyperthyroidism. Research shows that some types of cancer may cause your blood ferritin level to be high. When there is damage to organs that contain ferritin (especially the liver, spleen, and bone marrow), ferritin levels can often become elevated even though the total amount of iron in the body is normal.

According to company President Burton Lee, the company began manufacturing human ferritin for researchers studying metabolic disorders, chemotherapy, anemia, restless leg syndrome and autoimmune diseases. “There is such a demand for high quality proteins that we have had to hire additional laboratory technicians”, Lee Said.

Over the years, the ferritin product line has increased to include human liver ferritin, human spleen ferritin , human heart ferritin, human placental ferritin, mouse liver ferritin and rat liver ferritin.
