DiaSorin releases the only fully automated third generation assay for the determination of parathyroid hormone levels. LIAISON® 1-84 PTH is a chemiluminescent immunoassay for the quantitative determination of 1-84 PTH in serum and EDTA-plasma, without cross-reactivity with the 7-84 PTH fragment.
DiaSorin S.p.A. has announced the successful development of 2 new assays for detection of antibodies to Parvovirus B19 on the LIAISON® instrument: LIAISON® Biotrin Parvovirus B19 IgG and IgM.
The LIAISON® Calcitonin II Gen shows improved discrimination at low end when compared to the old assay. In addition, out of a population of 267 apparently healthy subjects, selected by normal levels of fT4, TSH and autoantibodies to Thyroglobulin, 98% of all values are below 10 pg/mL.
