The LiMAx test
The LiMAx test is an innovative liver function test. This bedside procedure allows the  detection of actual (enzymatic) liver function capicity in real time. In particular, after liver surgery the LiMAx test enables the early diagnosis of postoperative liver failure and provides useful diagnostic information for decision making in other liver related diseases. Currently the Charité University Hospital Berlin and other university hospitals in Europe use this test in clinical routine and research projects.  
Watch here the film about the strength of LiMAx testing in clinical practise!!!
