Vidan Diagnostics launches β-Hydroxybutyrate 21FS Reagent for BC AU clinical chemistry systems

Nov. 1, 2019

Vidan’s pre-filled reagent kits make it easy to load its β-Hydroxybutyrate 21FS Reagent directly onto the Beckman Coulter AU clinical chemistry systems. Competitor reagent kits for beta-hydroxybutyrate require laboratorians to transfer the reagent, (pour over) into AU system reagent bottles.

Beta-hydroxybutyrate is the predominate ketone body produced during Diabetic Ketoacidosis, (DKA) It’s relative proportion in the blood, (78 percent) is greater than the other two ketones, acetoacetate, (20 percent) and acetone (2 percent), and is therefore, the best indicator of DKA, a serious condition that can lead to diabetic coma or even death.

Founded in 2015, Vidan Diagnostics LLC is a supplier of medical diagnostic products. It is focused on medical devices and reagents used for diagnosing and monitoring patients with conditions of diabetes, sepsis, anemia, heart disease and stroke.
