Our response to COVID-19
Nowadays the essential role of In Vitro Diagnostics extends beyond Diagnosis and Epidemiological Surveillance. Also STAGING, PROGNOSTICATION and THERAPEUTIC MONITORING of COVID-19 patients is critical for assessing disease severity and progression.
In response to the global pandemic we created the CLINICAL CHEMISTRY NEW PANEL with a variety of COVID-19 related assays recommended for therapy and recovery monitoring of COVID-19 patients.
ALANINE AMINOTRANSFERASE (ALAT) – 2nd generation with unrivalled linearity up to 1200 U/L and 12 weeks on board and calibration stabilities;
ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASE (ASAT) - 2nd generation with unrivalled linearity up to 1200 U/L and 12 weeks on board and calibration stabilities;
ALBUMIN – wide measuring range 0.7 – 6.1 g/dl; 36 months shelf life and 9 weeks on board and 8 weeks calibration stabilities;
TOTAL BILIRUBIN - vanadate method linear up to 50 mg/dl; ready to use; reagent storage at room temp.; 12 weeks on board and calibration stability; 30 months shelf life.
CORMAY LIVER FUNCTION ASSAYS
CYSTAIN C - cost effective turbidimetric immunoassay available on biochemistry analyzers with exceptional correlation R=0,999 and 9 weeks on board and calibration stabilities;
CREATININE - enzymatic method eliminating interference from chromogens commonly observed in Jaffe method, makes the analyte determination more specific; method of choice for evaluating kidney function of pediatric patients; excellent measuring range of 0.05 - 32 mg/dl; 11 weeks on board stability;
UREA – excellent measuring range of 2.16 - 390 mg/dl; 10 weeks on board and calibration stabilities.
CORMAY KIDNEY FUNCTION ASSAYS
LACTATE DEHYDROGENASE (LDH) – optimized DGKC method linear up to 1670 U/L and 12 weeks on board stability.
CORMAY PULMONARY INJURY and/or ORGAN DAMAGE ASSAYS
C-REACTIVE PROTEIN (CRP) – full range test - can be used to confirm the absence of infection (very low values) and monitor the course of treatment (very high values); cost effective turbidimetric immunoassay available on biochemistry analyzers; 24 months shelf life;
FERRITIN – method linear up to 1060 ng/ml and 10 weeks on board stability; cost effective turbidimetric immunoassay available on biochemistry analyzers;
PROCALCITONIN – ready to use liquid stable reagents; fast test results approx. 10min; cost effective turbidimetric immunoassay available on biochemistry analyzers.
