Reagents

Reagents
Randox reagents are internationally recognised as being of the highest quality, offering reliable and rapid diagnosis. Our product portfolio offers more than 100 clinical assays, covering testing panels such as routine chemistry, lipids and cardiology, diabetes, therapeutic drugs monitoring, drugs of abuse testing, antioxidants and veterinary. Randox strive to continuously improve diagnostic solutions- this has led to the development of a range of high performance, speciality reagents.
Some examples of these assays include:

Adiponectin

Randox adiponectin is a clinical diagnostic biomarker for metabolic risk assessment. It has an important role in a number of metabolic processes such as glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation. Low adiponectin levels have been linked with several pathologies including metabolic syndrome, cancer and cardiovascular risk.

Key Features:

  • Automated Immunoturbidimetric assay – offering a more convenient and time efficient method for adiponectin measurement than traditional ELISA based testing
  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents – for convenience and ease of use
  • Applications available – with instrument specific settings for a wide range of analysers
  • Adiponectin controls and adiponectin calibrator available

Fructosamine

Fructosamine is a mid-term indicator of diabetic control as it can provide information on a person’s average blood glucose levels over the preceding 14-21 days.
Due to the shorter time span of fructosamine, it is often used to evaluate the effectiveness of medication changes and to monitor the treatment of gestational diabetes. Fructosamine is also particularly useful in situations where HbA1c cannot be reliably measured e.g. haemolytic anaemia, thalassemia or with genetic haemoglobin variants.

Key Features:

  • High performance method – the Randox Fructosamine assay employs an enzymatic method which offers improved specificity and reliability compared to conventional NBT-based methods. The Randox enzymatic method does not suffer from non-specific interferences unlike other commercially available fructosamine assays
  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents – for ease of use and convenience
  • Limited interference – from Bilirubin, Glucose, Haemoglobin, Intralipid® and Triglycerides ensuring truly accurate results are produced
  • Applications available – with instrument specific settings for a wide range of analysers
  • Fructosamine controls and fructosamine calibrator available

Cystatin C

Randox Cystatin C offers an alternative to traditional creatinine testing. Randox Cystatin C is extremely sensitive to small changes in Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) and is therefore able to detect early reductions in this rate. Furthermore, it is unaffected by non-renal factors such as gender, age and weight. Creatinine testing cannot offer these advantages.

Key Features:

  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents
  • Extensive measuring range– 0.4-10mg/l, allowing normal and abnormal samples to be accurately measured without additional dilutions
  • 7 day calibration frequency- advantageous when running Cystatin C as part of routine testing
  • Applications available – with instrument-specific setting for a wide range of biochemistry analysers

NEFA

Non-Esterified Fatty Acids (NEFA) are molecules released from triglycerides by the action of the enzyme lipase and are transported in the blood bound to albumin.
Measurement of NEFA is particularly important in diabetes where insulin deficiency results in the metabolism of fat. Levels are also frequently increased in obese patients.
• Lypohilised reagents – for enhanced stability
Calibrator supplied with kit – simplifying the ordering process
• Excellent measuring range – of 0.072 to 2.24 mmol/l for comfortable detection of abnormal levels
Applications available – with instrument-specific setting for a wide range of biochemistry analysers
Colorimetric method
• Complementary controls and calibrators available
