Neutrophil Oxidative Burst Test
The measure of oxidation is a useful assay in the diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease and is also a useful means to determine the overal metabolic integrity of phagocytizing neutrophils.
Formation of the reactive oxidants during the oxidative burst is monitored by the addition and enzymatic oxidation of a fluorogenic substrate, DHR 123. The level of reactive oxygen radicals is determined by flow cytometry. This test has not been cleared or approved for diagnostic use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
