Specialty Immunoassay Controls

Bio-Rad LiquichekTM and Lyphochek® Specialty Immunoassay Controls are uniquely formulated control materials that can provide values for 25-OH Vitamin D2, D3, and Total Vitamin D. Both controls can be used on major automated instruments, as well as LC/MS methods. Long shelf life and open-vial stability allows you to monitor assay performance across multiple reagent lots, as well as effective utilization of the control material. Bio-Rad Laboratories

IDS 25 VitDS

An automated assay for the quantitative determination of total 25-hydroxyvitamin D from human serum or plasma using the IDS-iSYS. The assay results are used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory data to assist the clinician in the assessment of vitamin D sufficiency. The IDS 25 VitDS assay is traceable to the ID-LCMS/MS 25(OH)D Reference Method Procedure (RMP) which was used in assigning the target value for the Vitamin D Standardization Program (VDSP) samples. The ID-LCMS/MS RMP is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology Standard Reference Material 29723,4. Calibrators and controls are ready to use; reagents stored on-board the analyzer making this a user-friendly way to determine vitamin D status. Immunodiagnostic Systems

Lumipulse G 25-OH Vitamin D

Lumipulse G 25-OH Vitamin D is a Chemiluminescent Enzyme Immunoassay (CLEIA) for the quantitative determination of 25- hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH vitamin D) and other hydroxylated vitamin D metabolites in human serum and plasma (sodium heparin, lithium heparin, or dipotassium EDTA) on the LUMIPULSE G System.

Vitamin D Total Assay

Vitamin D is a critical nutrient to maintain strong bones. It is produced by the body in response to sunlight and occurs naturally in some foods. However, for some adults, factors such as restricted diet, frequent use of sunscreen and a sedentary lifestyle can lead to vitamin D deficiency. The Access 25(OH) Vitamin D Total assay detects 25(OH) vitamin D2 and 25(OH) vitamin D3, eliminating the need for multiple tests or sample reruns. The assay meets the highest standards, aligned with Ghent University 25(OH) standard, and is scalable across all Beckman Coulter immunoassay analyzers, including Access and UniCel Dxl.
