CHS Steroid Profiling kit (Not available in USA and Canada)
PerkinElmer CHS MSMS Steroid Kit represents the latest generation in LC-MSMS products, offering superior limits of quantification. In addition, the kit provides the opportunity to view the overall pattern of expression of steroids rather than relying on individual one-off tests.
The CE-approved CHS MSMS Steroid Kit requires no derivatization steps and supports major savings in time and costs. It is especially well suited for specimens with low concentrations and small volume. With such specimens, the thoroughly validated kit affords high sensitivity and specificity through analyte-specific calibration together with the ability to measure 10 steroid analytes in the same aliquot.
Simultaneous measurement of up to 10 steroid analytes
Using a sample volume of only 100 μl, the multianalyte steroid profiling kit provides results for up to10 analytes in the same assay:
- dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA
- dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, DHEAS
Determination of concentration profiles of these 10 steroids may aid in clinical recognition, diagnosis and treatment of disease affecting the adrenal glands, ovaries, testes, and placenta.
State-of-the-art product to give you confidence in your results
The kit is thoroughly validated. With specialized calibrators, and analyte-specific internal standards with deuterium labels, it also provides the luxury of three levels of analyte-specific internal controls.
From individual results to comprehensive profiles
Numerous enzymes are involved in the biosynthetic pathway of steroids and steroid intermediates. Loss of function of certain enzymes can trigger large changes in the pattern of steroid expression. With tandem mass spectrometry and CHT products, you can see the overall pattern of expression of steroids rather than individually acquired steroid values.
PerkinElmer CHS products are not available in the USA and Canada. Available as a CE marked IVD where recognized.
