Salem, NH, September 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- ALPCO has launched its new STELLUX® Chemi Active GLP-1 ELISA specific for the determination of the (7-36 amide) GLP-1 fragment, which is the prime biologically active form of GLP-1 in humans and mice. The newest addition to the STELLUX® Chemiluminescence line of assays features superior sensitivity of < 1 pM, making it ideal for quantifying fasted levels of active GLP-1. Additionally, the assay only requires 10 µL of human or rodent samples and does not cross-react with any pro-glucagon derived fragments.
“Current GLP-1 ELISAs on the market require large sample volumes or special instrumentation to achieve the desired sensitivity and detect fasting levels of circulating GLP-1,” explains ALPCO’s President, Sean Conley. “We developed the STELLUX® Chemi Active GLP-1 ELISA to eliminate the variability of questionable results, while also increasing precision and accuracy for users.”
The STELLUX® Chemi Active GLP-1 ELISA is For Research Use Only. The assay does not require any sample extraction and has a range of 0.66 - 1355 pM. Visit alpco.com
