Myohemoglobin (Myo) Test
The Myo blood test kit is used for the determination of myoglobin (Mb) content in serum.
Myoglobin is a heme protein found in the cytoplasm of the myocardium and skeletal muscle. It is not found in smooth muscle, has a molecular weight of 17500 and a half-life of about 15 minutes. Myoglobin can be detected in the blood 1 to 4 hours after the onset of acute myocardial infarction, peaking in 6 to 7 hours, is one of the earliest biomarkers representing the rise of myocardial injury.
