Key Features and Values
– Same sample type can be used across all assays to simplify inclusion into routine serology work-up
– Ready to use reagents reduces hands-on time for assay preparation
– Long shelf life cost-effective solution by reducing wastage due to expired kits
– Suitable for inclusion on automated plate systems simplifies scale-up of test volume
– Supported by a complete panel of assays for supporting treatment monitoring of several forms of hormonal dysfunctions
Immunoenzymatic colorimetric method for the quantitative determination of thyroxine (T4) concentration in human serum and plasma. T4 ELISA kit is intended for laboratory use only.
Numerous physiological and pathological stimuli influence thyroid hormone synthesis. Thyroid hormones act through an unknown mechanism to inhibit neuronal activity; one of the effects is the reduction of the body temperature. Thyrotoxicosis or hyperthyroidism is the clinical syndrome caused by an excess of circulating free thyroxine, free triiodothyronine, or both. Both T3 and T4 are used to treat thyroid hormone deficiency (hypothyroidism).
