Alternatives to DiaSorin and Siemens Discontinued RIA Assays

May 17, 2017

Some diagnostic companies have recently made the decision to stop manufacturing RIA assays, mainly as this specialty field no longer fits in their long-term strategic business plans. Examples are: Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Products has decided to no longer support the full DPC Coat-A-Count RIA product line and DiaSorin, who stopped production of the majority of their RIA products.

This means that assistance in resolving method-related issues for these RIA products will no longer be available within Siemens or DiaSorin either on-site or by telephone. As a leading RIA specialist company, we strive to deliver sustainable solutions in select fields of specialties. We therefore continue and remain committed to offer RIA specialty assays in the field of Endocrinology.

IBL-America is able to offer you alternative kits corresponding with the discontinued DiaSorin, Siemens DPC RIA kit and others. For assays with specific requirements on sensitivity which are covered by RIA technology only or by preference, we are confident that our assay kit menu offers valuable alternatives for these discontinued assays. Please contact us for suitable alternative solutions to your testing needs in the field of endocrinology.

Presenting the Free 25OH Vitamin D ELISA Technical Review

April 28, 2017

Recent studies suggest that the concentration and genotype of Vitamin D binding protein (DBP) are important factors that determine the bioavailability of 25OH Vitamin D in blood. There is accumulating data that for instance in pregnant women, chronic kidney disease, liver failure, bladder cancer and pancreatic cancer, or in hemodialysis patients the measurement of free 25OH Vitamin D in serum provides more relevant diagnostic information than total 25OH Vitamin D.

Several research groups have therefore called for a direct measurement of free 25OH Vitamin D, instead of using inaccurate calculation methods….Read More
