Immunohemistry

Osteocalcin analysis is a test used to determine the concentration of osteocalcin in the blood. This analysis is often combined with other bone markers to assess the characteristics of bone metabolism.

IntroLab, a blood-drawing laboratory, has a professional team of medical technicians who carefully perform osteocalcin analysis using state-of-the-art equipment. Our laboratory aims to provide high-quality laboratory services to patients in Belgrade and beyond.

When is osteocalcin analysis indicated?

When there is a suspicion of altered bone quality or the appearance of certain symptoms and conditions, such as frequent fractures, it is recommended to determine osteocalcin levels along with other bone markers. In such cases, it is also advisable to determine levels of vitamin D, PTH, and total calcium and to consult the results of other blood tests for osteoporosis.

In young individuals, osteocalcin can be useful in diagnosing metabolic diseases such as Paget’s disease, osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), rickets, and others.

The most important application of osteocalcin is in assessing the effectiveness of antiresorptive bone therapy, such as bisphosphonates or hormone replacement therapy, in conditions like osteoporosis or hypercalcemia from various causes. In these situations, osteocalcin determination is performed at the start of therapy and then periodically repeated every three to six months to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment.
