Clinical relevance

Vitamins A and E are fat-soluble vitamins, which perform important functions in the body.

Vitamin A plays an important role in vision, bone metabolism, and the synthesis of steroid hormones. Deficiency of vitamin A can lead to night blindness, skin dehydration, and hair loss.

Vitamin E protects, among others, unsaturated fatty acids in the cell membranes and the LDL cholesterol from attacks by reactive radicals, which can occur as a result of increased oxidative stress in the body. Deficiency of vitamin E can lead to permanent joint pain, making the determination of vitamin E levels essential in this case.

However, overdoses of these vitamins may cause hypervitaminosis with intoxication symptoms. In addition, chemotherapies should not be "accompanied" by extra vitamin supplements – especially high doses of vitamins A and E may limit the success of treatment.


Product advantages

  • Automated sample preparation:
    96 samples in less than 30 minutes


This HPLC kit allows for the automated analysis of vitamins A and E in plasma/serum. The automated preparation of 96 samples can be completed in less than 30 minutes – ideal for resource-saving processing of larger numbers of samples.

Chromsystems also offers another automated method using UHPLC.
