IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Endocrine Hormone

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of a sample of body fluids (e.g, serum, plasma, urine) to determine one or more of a group of protein hormones (e.g., adenocortiotropic, human growth hormone) that are typically secreted by a specialized gland (i.e., an endocrine gland) in one location and directly released into the plasma or lymph to exert their specific effects in other organs. Most immunoassays of endocrine hormones are performed using nonisotopic labels and labeled-monoclonal antibodies (immunometric) assays. Radioimmunoassays are also used in some determinations.

ALPCO Diagnostics

Company Type: Parent

ALPCO distributed one product in the United States. Within a decade of its founding, ALPCO partnered with more than 40 manufactures and grew its distribution network throughout North America. To further meet the needs of its customers, ALPCO expanded in 2004 with the advent of its Research and Development Division. Within three years, ALPCO launched its first line of organically developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits for insulin. Since then, ALPCO has solidified its place in the domestic and international markets not only as a distributor, but also as a developer and manufacturer of immunoassays.
