Laboratory: Clinical Biochemistry
Test Name:
PERCENT IRON SATURATION (CALCULATION)
Test Code: See individual tests
Clinical Information:
Percent iron saturation of transferrin is used to properly interpret plasma iron.  It is calculated automatically using plasma iron and total iron binding capacity (TIBC). 
% Iron Saturation = (Plasma Iron/TIBC)x100
