The Suresign Iron Deficiency Ferritin Test is a rapid test for the qualitative detection of ferrtin in human fingerstick blood for iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency occurs when the blood does not contain enough red blood cells and thus low levels of hemoglobin which is the major protein involved in oxygen transport around the body.
Anemia due to iron depletion is widely held in children and women of all ages but mainly in women who still have their periods.
