The PLAQPRO Lp-PLA2 Assay, from Enzo Life Sciences, measures the enzyme activity of Lp-PLA2 in serum samples.
Cayman's NGAL (human) ELISA Kit is a sandwich assay that can be used for the quantification of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) in human urine or plasma samples.
Angsana Molecular & Diagnostics Laboratory has announced that it will provide tests for allergen sensitisation specific for the Asian population. The tests will be based on Thermo Fisher Scientific's ImmunoCAP technology and performed on Phadia Laboratory Systems.
Periostin ELISA kits from AdipoGen Life Sciences enable the in vitro quantitative determination of human or mouse periostin in cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma. The assays are sandwich ELISAs that use a colorimetric detection system for periostin detection.
The generic Rapid Assay Device (gRAD) from BioPorto Diagnostics makes it easy and fast to develop a customised qualitative or semiquantitative lateral flow assay.
Applied BioProbes offers the LIVE-or-DIE cell viability assay for yeast, animal and bacterial cells. The kit is designed to enumerate the proportion of live and dead cells in a population.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared for marketing the Xpert Carba-R Assay, manufactured by California company Cepheid.
The Total PSA ELISA kit, from Enzo Life Sciences, enables the detection of total PSA in human serum, plasma, urine and tissue culture media samples in just 2.5 h for up to 40 samples in duplicate.
The AMPIPROBE HCV assay kit, from Enzo, is a quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) assay for the detection of human hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA in plasma or serum.
The Nampt ELISA kit is a sandwich-based colorimetric assay that is suitable for the in vitro quantitative determination of human Nampt, within the range of 0.25 to 16 ng/mL, in cell lysates or cell-based assays.
The LDH Cytotoxicity WST Assay is a colorimetric assay kit used to determine cytotoxicity by measuring lactate dehydrogenase activity released from damaged cells.
Enzo's FLUOFORTE Calcium Assay Kits detect mobilisation of intracellular calcium utilising a fluorogenic calcium-binding dye optimised for good cell permeability and retention. Developed for use with conventional dual-dispensing microplate readers, the kits provide EC50 values comparable to Fluo-4 and Calcium 4.
With the launch of the improved Romer AgraStrip Soy kit, the total assay time of the product's lateral flow device is reduced to 11 min while maintaining high standards of analytical accuracy. In addition, an extraction reagent will allow for the recovery of processed soy protein.
A new biosensor test system, based on magnetic nanoparticles, is designed to accurately measure the concentration of protein molecules in various samples, including opaque solutions or strongly coloured liquids.
US scientists have proposed a way to speed up the time it takes to conduct biological assays. Their solution, reminiscent of the science behind washing machines, could reduce wait times from hours to minutes.
