-This revolutionary testing kit will be on display, with DRG scientific team on hand for in-depth discussion-


Newswise — Springfield, New Jersey, USA (July 2018)- DRG International, a leading international medical diagnostic company, will showcase the NEW DRG® Hepcidin Salivary ELISA Kit (SLV-6082) at the 2018 AACC Conference in Chicago, Illinois from July 29 – August 2.  As the first of its kind to market, this kit accurately detects bioactive Hepcidin levels in saliva samples as an additional marker to aid in identifying a variety of disorders.  In recent years, a large number of publications identify Hepcidin as a factor in regulating the amount of iron in humans.  Unbalanced iron level can lead to many common medical conditions including anemia and iron overload disease, and can occur in chronic kidney disease, inflammation, or diabetes mellitus.


The DRG® Hepcidin Salivary ELISA Kit (SLV-6082) is available worldwide, providing a simple, fast and accurate method to test Hepcidin levels. Some of the kit features include:

  • Range: 125 – 8,000 pg/ml
  • Incubation: 60/30 min
  • Sample Volume: 100 µLSaliva

DRG currently holds 17 US and International active patents on this product. The measurement results of this kit offer more information to help treat medical issues including iron deficiency diseases, which are some of the most common diseases worldwide. The kit is for Research Use Only (RUO) in the United States and is also CE marked.
