Eagle Biosciences Introduces Cytokeratin ELISA Kits to North American Laboratories

July 11, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Eagle Biosciences announces the product launch of 3 new assays to measure urinary, serum, and plasma cytokeratins. The first assay introduced is the TPS® ELISA (Cytokeratin 18 kit) which allows for the measurement of keratin 8 in serum and plasma samples. For measuring both keratin 8 and keratin 18 in the same sample, Eagle introduces the TPAcyk™ ELISA (Cytokeratin 8 and Cytokeratin 18 kit) for serum samples and UBA™ II ELISA (Cytokeratin 8 and Cytokeratin 18 kit) for urine samples.
Note: UBA™ is known as UBC® outside of the US.

"This product launch is a direct result of our recent exclusive agreement with IDL Biotech AB", said Dan Keefe, President of Eagle Biosciences. "These are high quality ELISA kits that we expect to soon become the gold standard for measuring cytokeratin 8 and cytokeratin 18 in urine, serum, and plasma. We are very excited to offer these products to laboratories in North America."

Eagle anticipates offering promotional pricing in the coming months for researchers measuring keratin 8 or keratin 18. These assay kits are currently for research use only. Check out the Eagle website www.EagleBio.com or call 866-411-8023 for full details.
