Transferrin saturation, measured as a percentage, is a medical laboratory value. It is the ratio of serum iron and total iron-binding capacity, multiplied by 100. For an explanation of some clinical situations in which this ratio is important, see Total iron-binding capacity. The three results are usually reported together.

Usual values

  • Serum iron: 60-170 mcg/dl
  • TIBC: 240-450 mcg/dl
  • Transferrin saturation: 20-50%

mcg/dl = micrograms per deciliter.

Laboratories often use different units and "normal" may vary by population and the lab techniques used. Look at the individual laboratory reference values to interpret a specific test (for instance, your own).
