The accurate measurement of active GLP-1 in blood is considered critical for basic and clinical research of diabetes.Measuring active GLP-1 in blood without the influence of non-specific reactions made by Heterophilic Antibodies (HA), especially HAMA (Human Anti-Mouse Antibodies) is required for obtaining accurate active GLP-1 values and Solid-Phase Extraction: SPE pre-treatment is typically needed. However, [...]
The complement system is part of the host defense with a number of biological effects, most of which contribute to the inflammatory reaction mainly by activation of cells like leukocytes and endothelial cells. An intact complement system is required for protection against infection and for maintaining the internal inflammatory homeostasis. However, the system is a [...]
TNF inhibitors are a type of drug used worldwide to treat inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, juvenile arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriasis. They reduce inflammation and stop disease progression by targeting an inflammation-causing substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF).In healthy individuals, excess TNF in [...]
(Pro)renin receptor/(P)RR is a common receptor protein between renin and prorenin. When prorenin binds to (P)RR, it achieves a binding ability to angiotensinogen and gains a catalytic activity for conversion from angiotensinogen to ansiotensin I in a comparable level with renin. Additionally, when the (P)RR is stimulated by binding to prorenin, its intracellular signaling progresses. [...]
Visit our team at the 31st Annual Association of Medical Laboratory Immunologists (AMLI) Scientific Meeting!Each year the AMLI holds an annual meeting that presents cutting edge science from various fields related to clinical and diagnostic laboratory immunology. This event serves as a forum for clinical immunologists to meet, learn and discuss common interests. The annual [...]
Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) belongs to the group of biogenic amines and is an intermediate product of the tryptophan metabolism. It plays an important role as a neurotransmitter in the regulation of different behavioral patterns such as motor activity, aggression, sexuality, appetite, and sleep.Diseases which are associated with altered serotonin concentrations include disorders of the CNS, for [...]
We are proud to announce our collaboration with Pacific Biomarkers on their abstract: Performance Evaluation of an Automated Assay for the Measurement of LPL and HL Activity. The following poster will be presented at the AACC.Title: Performance Evaluation of an Automated Assay for the Measurement of LPL and HL ActivityPoster Number: B-158 Date: [...]
Galactose-deficient IgA1 (Gd-IgA1) attracts a lot of attention as a critical effector molecule in the pathogenesis and progression of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in many recent studies.It is suggested that several O-link glycans modified regions exist in the heavy chain hinge region of human IgA1 molecules and Gd-IgA1 circulates in blood stream of the patients with [...]
This new product range includes ELISA tests for the detection of different viral, bacterial and parasitic antigens in fecal specimen. Using this product range offers you an extremely easy and cost effective laboratory routine, based on identical procedures and general components. The focus is set to steadily optimize the procedure of the assays for the laboratory routine. Another focus is set on the development of [...]
