IDS-iSYS Salivary Cortisol
Immunodiagnostic Systems (IDS) has released the IDS-iSYS Salivary Cortisol assay for use on the IDS-iSYS Multi-Discipline Automated System family.
Together with the planned addition of the IDS-iSYS Cortisol test for use with human serum, plasma and urine samples and the IDS-iSYS ACTH in 2016, laboratories can consolidate the assessment of Cushing’s syndrome and other disturbances of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis1-4 on the IDS-iSYS Multi-Discipline Automated System.
The IDS-iSYS Salivary Cortisol assay will provide the following benefits to you:
The assay is fully automated, with less than 8 minutes time to first results, allowing you to efficiently provide accurate biologically active plasma free cortisol results.
The assay calibrators are traceable to an isotope dilution-mass spectrometry (ID-MS).
The assay has excellent precision, functional sensitivity (0.02 μg/dL) and an assay measurable range (0.02-3.00μg/dL), giving you further confidence in the quality of assay results
