Eurolyser presents a new parameter for the measurement of PSA (prostate specific antigen). This test provides reliable, precise and immediate results.
Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 34,000 which is located in the prostatic organization and seminal plasma. The PSA out of the blood increases with the occurence of prostate cancer, prostatomegaly, prostatitis and other prostatic diseases. Particularly blood PSA levels increase remarkably in patients with prostate cancer.
Applications in diagnostics
Eurolyser’s PSA test kit was specifically designed for physicians, who need to assess their patients’ risk for prostatic diseases.
- In-house/on-site diagnosis (no more time delay due to sent out samples)
- Results in less than 6 minutes (from serum)
- Excellent accuracy
- Easy test procedure
Antibodyadsorbed latex particles and PSA in the sample react immunologically, and causing the latex particles to agglutinate. This agglutination results in a change of turbidity, and the change in absorbance is a measure of the amount of PSA in the sample.
Serum/plasma: 2 – 50 ng/ml
EDTA whole blood: 3 – 50 ng/ml
