Newswise — ALPCO, a leading producer of research and clinical immunoassays, recently launched its new STELLUX® Chemi Active GLP-1 (7-36) amide ELISA . The chemiluminescence ELISA features increased sensitivity to accurately quantify active GLP-1 (7-36) amide levels as low as 1.5 pg/mL with a 25 µL sample volume. The low sample volume coupled with the increased sensitivity of the assay allows researchers to effectively quantify fasted levels of active GLP-1 (7-36) amide in rodents and humans.

“Our customers were experiencing challenges in confidently quantifying active GLP-1 (7-36) amide levels without cross-reactivity, as well as being able to use the same kit in rodent and human models,” explains ALPCO’s president, Sean Conley. “We designed our ELISA to address these needs and provide a more sensitive and flexible tool to better serve a variety of model systems. We are confident these features will empower users to further their diabetes research beyond the bench and improve care.”

Additionally, the STELLUX® Active GLP-1 (7-36) amide ELISA is highly specific with 100% cross-reactivity to GLP-1 (7-36) amide, and does not cross-react with glucagon and oxyntomodulin. The assay can be easily run in less than three hours, allowing users to run more samples each day. It is currently for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures.
