Medix Biochemica


MedixMAB cardiac troponin I clone

The latest addition to the MedixMAB™ cardiac troponin I antibody panel is clone #9707. This clone recognizes a C-terminal epitope located in residues 190–195 of the cTnI molecule. This binding epitope lies outside the stable midregion of cTnI, and antibodies binding to this epitope are not affected by the binding of autoantibodies. Clone #9707 can be used to devise a combinatorial cardiac troponin I assay using multiple troponin-specific antibodies to overcome the effects caused by different modifying and interfering agents. Clone #9707, like all MedixMAB™ monoclonals, is available in any needed scale and manufactured using the latest in vitro manufacturing technology.

HCTS2000 MK2 Tube Sorter

The HCTS2000 MK2 is designed for sorting closed, primary-sample tubes using information in the barcode or through queries to the LIS. The sorter helps optimize the work flow in the entrance area of the laboratory or in hematology department by freeing up laboratory personnel so they can concentrate on other tasks. Much faster and accurate than manual sorting, the HCTS2000 MK2 quickly handles the surges of tubes as they arrive throughout the day. The sorter minimizes bottlenecks in the entrance and hematology areas, decreases TAT, and increases total laboratory throughput.

Homocysteine

Olympus, a leader in in vitro diagnostics, announces the release of Homocysteine Reagent, OSR62206, intended for quantitative determination of total L-homocysteine. The liquid, ready-to-use reagent presents with fully optimized applications for excellent performance on the Olympus AU® chemistry systems. The assay demonstrates a dynamic measuring range of 3–50 µmol/L. Excess homocysteine in the blood stream may cause injuries to arterial vessels due to its irritant nature and result in inflammation and plague formation that may eventually cause blockage of blood flow to the heart. Homocysteine is considered an emerging biomarker for the risk assessment of cardiovascular disease.

Cystatin C

Olympus, a leader in in vitro diagnostics, announces the release of OSR62207, a latex-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay intended for quantitative determination of cystatin C in serum and plasma samples with fully optimized applications on the Olympus AU® chemistry systems. The assay demonstrates a dynamic measuring range of 0.13–8.0 mg/L. Cystatin C has advantages over routine clinical measures of renal function. Cystatin C is more accurate than plasma creatinine measurements and the Cockcroft-Gault estimation of creatinine clearance. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests cystatin C can be used to detect kidney disease at earlier stages than serum creatinine, which may help facilitate prevention efforts in the elderly and those with diabetes, hypertension or cardiovascular disease.
