Transferrin Serum Iron Saturation Formula

Transferrin saturation (TSAT) is a reliable marker of iron status in a patients body. It is the ratio of serum iron (SE) and total iron-binding capacity, multiplied by 100. It is a clinical practice of checking the iron status of a patient. Given here is the transferrin serum iron saturation formula for calculating the TSAT value, with the normal reference ranges. For instance, a value of 15% means that 15% of iron-binding sites of transferrin are being occupied by iron.

TIBC Calculation Formula:

TS = (Serum Iron / Total Iron Binding Capacity) x 100%

Normal reference ranges are :
Serum iron: 60-170 mcg/dl
TIBC: 240-450 mcg/dl
Transferrin saturation: 20-50%
mcg/dl = micrograms per deciliter.
