Sensitivity

Characteristics

The assay shows a higher specificity than any other kit in the market due to precipitation of the formed 125I-insulin-anti-insulin complexes with anti-human IgG.
Conventional methods use PEG precipitation or similar methods which have a poor specificity with a high background and, consequently, low discrimination between normal and pathological values. Therefore, the new test has also a higher sensitivity than existing methods
Quick and simple performance.
