Additional Info

Bile acids are an important test for monitoring normal liver function. Bile acid is metabolized in the liver and is present in increased concentrations with abnormal liver function. This assay can be used to measure bile acid concentrations in mice in a wide variety of applications including mouse serum, liver, bile, feces, and intestine.
