Epitope Diagnostics, Inc. Certifies Its Total 25-OH Vitamin D EIA Kit Through the CDCís Vitamin D Standardization-Certification Program (VDSCP)


San Diego, CA, October 21, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Epitope Diagnostics, Inc. (EDI), is pleased to announce it has received certification for the Vitamin D Standardization Program (VDSP) for vitamin D measurement in the EDI™ Total 25-OH Vitamin D EIA Kit. CDC’s Vitamin D Standardization-Certification Program (VDSCP) evaluates the accuracy and reliability of vitamin D tests using well-established procedures, and certifies those that have a certain accuracy and precision.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) established the Vitamin D Standardization Program (VDSP) in November 2010. Part of the ODS Vitamin D Initiative, VDSP is an international collaborative effort to standardize the laboratory measurement of vitamin D status.

The role of Vitamin D in regulating circulating levels of Calcium and Phosphorous to ensure normal bone mineralization is well known. Emerging evidence correlates insufficient levels of Vitamin D to an increased risk of developing non skeletal pathologies such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and infectious diseases. EDI’s VDSP certification confirms the quality and reliability in the EDI™ Total 25-OH Vitamin D EIA Kit.

Continuing EDI’s expertise in endocrinology and Vitamin D testing, EDI will soon launch a fully automated chemiluminescence analyzer with validated assays to enable clinicians to generate reproducible results, enhance accuracy and reliability, and to deliver innovative solutions for diagnostics, therapy monitoring and research.
