Product Features

Diazyme's Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP) is a dual liquid stable reagent system which provides reliable results. The method requires only 7 μL of sample, completed in less than 10 minutes, and has excellent correlation with existing commercial products with R2 of 0.9793, a slope of 0.999 and a y intercept of -0.683. The assay has within-run precision values of less than 7.6%.

Assay Principle

Diazyme's α-Fetoprotein Assay is based on a latex enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay. AFP in the sample binds to the specific anti-AFP antibodies, which are coated on latex particles, and causes agglutination. The degree of the turbidity caused by agglutination can be measured optically and is proportional to the amount of AFP in the sample. The instrument calculates the AFP concentration of a patient specimen by interpolation of the obtained signal of a 6-point calibration curve.

Intended use

The Diazyme α-Fetoprotein Assay is for the determination of α-Fetoprotein concentration in serum or plasma by latex enhanced immunoturbidimetric method. For Research Use Only in U.S.A.
