FEP is a test offered by the SAAS Porphyria Service in Reference Biochemistry at King’s College Hospital. Quantitative measurement of FEP is reported with zinc protoporphyrin (ZPP) using fluorescence spectroscopy.
FEP is present in red blood cells and combines with iron to form haem. FEP is elevated in patients with erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) and X-linked protoporphyria (XLPP).
