The new Vitamin D Assay for Clinical Chemistry Analyzers from Diazyme Laboratories is the first and only Vitamin D test that is specifically designed for use on clinical chemistry analyzers.

Clinical laboratories can now improve their workflow and reduce their turnaround time for test results with the Vitamin D Assay for Chemistry Analyzers available at Block Scientific, an established lab equipment supplier in the U.S. This is the first and only Vitamin D test that is specifically designed for use on clinical chemistry analyzers.

Measurement of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) is required for assessment of vitamin D sufficiency. The Diazyme 25-OH Vitamin D Assay is intended for use in clinical laboratories for the quantitative determination of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) in human serum and plasma on automated chemistry analyzers. The assay requires only 20 uL of sample and returns patient results within 19 minutes.

Designed only for in vitro diagnostic use, Diazyme's new Vitamin D assay utilizes femtoquantTM technology (a sensitive homogenous enzyme-immunoassay platform) that provides the first fully automated Vitamin D test for use on general clinical chemistry analyzers. This Vitamin D assay measures a total of 25-hydroxy Vitamin D (sum of 25-(OH) D3 + 25-(OH) D2) levels.

"This innovative Vitamin D assay enables clinical laboratories of virtually all sizes to run Vitamin D test in-house without the need for expensive specialized instruments. This high-throughput liquid stable assay provides precise test results, is user friendly, cost-effective and has excellent correlation to the existing commercial methods. Diazyme's Vitamin D assay can help clinical laboratories improve their workflow and reduce their turnaround time for test results," said Dr. Chong Yuan, Managing Director of Diazyme Laboratories.

Block Scientific also offers 25-OH Vitamin D Control Set that is intended for use as quality controls for Diazyme 25-OH Vitamin D Assay Kit only.
