Circulating Testosterone consists of testosterone bound to SHBG and the bioavailable (Free & Bound to Albumin). The latter is biologically active. In men approximately 40% of Total testosterone is albumin bound while in women approximately 20% is albumin bound. This assay is useful in assessing testicular function in males and managing hirsutism, virilization in females.
