Cisbio offers 3 kits for the quantification of insulin

Insulin is secreted by pancreatic ß-cells and is a key regulator in glucose homeostasis. Insulin deficiency leads to insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes, whereas resistance to insulin action is common in non-insulin-dependent diabetes (type 2), obesity, and endocrine dysfunctions.

The sample type is by far the most important consideration when selecting an assay kit. Our recommendations for a successful match between sample type and kit will ensure the best assay results are obtained.

 

Choose your assay based on the expected level of Insulin secretion:

  Range LoD
Insulin High Range kit 0.14 - 150 ng/mL 0.14 ng/mL
Insulin Mouse Serum kit 0.064 - 8 ng/mL 0.064 ng/mL
Insulin Ultra Sensitive kit 0.004 - 8 ng/mL 0.004 ng/mL
