DRG International, a leading international medical diagnostic company, will showcase its DRG Hepcidin 25 (bioactive) ELISA Kit (EIA-5258) at the 2014 AACC in Chicago, IL from July 27-31. First of its kind to premiere on the market, this kit accurately detects Hepcidin levels helping to quickly identify iron disorders including hemochromatosis and anemia.

In recent years, scientists discovered that Hepcidin helps regulate the amount of iron in humans. Unbalanced iron level can lead to many common medical conditions including anemia and iron overload disease and it can occur in chronic kidney disease, inflammation, or diabetes mellitus.

“We at DRG International saw the need for an accurate and easy to use Hepcidin testing kit and have relished the great success that our research customers have seen using the product,” stated Dr. Cyril E. Geacintov, founder, president and CEO of DRG International. “This kit is an important step to meet the rapidly growing worldwide interest in Hepcidin testing and the applications of that testing in the health and wellness community.”

The DRG Hepcidin 25 (bioactive) ELISA Kit is available worldwide, providing a simple, fast and accurate method to test Hepcidin levels. DRG currently holds 19 active US and International 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.
