Vitros® Immunodiagnostic Products Insulin Reagent

The Vitros Insulin assay helps clinicians understand the cause of a patient’s hypoglycemia and differentiate between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. 

The Vitros Insulin assay antibody is highly specific for insulin detection, with no cross-reactivity to C-peptide or proinsulin.1 Importantly, it has insignificant or no cross-reactivity to insulin analogs commonly used in diabetes treatment.

Vitros® Immunodiagnostics C-Peptide Assay

C-peptide testing provides a reliable assessment of beta-cell function and aids in differentiating Type 1, Type 2 diabetes and MODY.

Differentiating the diabetes type at clinical presentation is challenging, and clear answers can improve treatment decisions.

The Vitros C-Peptide assay uses an antibody highly specific for C-peptide detection with no significant cross-reactivities to insulin, proinsulin, glucagon, calcitonin or somatostatin.

β-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor® Assay*

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) can manifest as the first sign of diabetes for patients with Type 1 and can occur in severe cases of hyperglycemia for patients with Type 2 diabetes.

The ß-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor assay quantitatively measures ß-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), the major ketone by-product from the body metabolizing fat stored in the liver when glucose is not available. The buildup of ketones in the blood can be fatal if left unchecked.

The ß-Hydroxybutyrate LiquiColor Assay is highly specific and is not susceptible to interferences for excellent performance on Vitros Systems. This life-saving test is ready when you are.

*MicroTip Partnership Assay. May not be available in all countries.

Glycated Serum Protein Assay*

Health conditions that alter the red blood cell lifespan make traditional HbA1c blood test methods unsuitable. Monitoring glycated serum proteins (GSP) provides clinicians with a short-term glycemic view of two to three weeks that’s useful in monitoring the effects of changes in diabetes treatment.

The Glycated Serum Protein assay uses an enzyme highly specific to glycated serum proteins. It does not have interference to reducing substances such as vitamins and bilirubin, unlike older colorimetric fructosamine assays.

*MicroTip Partnership Assay. May not be available in all countries.
