DCL Introduces Liquid-Sable Ezymatic Creatinine Reagent

Oxford, CT . . . Diagnostic Chemicals Limited (DCL) has just received the necessary FDA clearance to add a new, fully liquid-stable Enzymatic Creatinine reagent to its growing portfolio of clinical chemistry products. The availability of DCL’s Enzymatic Creatinine reagent is certain to serve as a useful clinical tool for medical laboratory professionals in physician’s office, hospital, veterinary testing and commercial reference laboratories alike.

Using a multi-step enzymatic approach, which is triggered by Creatinine Amidohydrolase, this novel, two-part reagent system quantitatively and accurately measures concentrations of Creatinine in serum, urine or plasma specimens. The assay displays virtually no significant interference effects from lipemia, hemolysis, icterus, or ascorbic acid, with a vastly reduced interference profile from many non-Creatinine associated chromogens, as typically observed with the traditional Jaffé method.

DCL’s Enzymatic Creatinine reagent also incorporates unique technology resulting in a reagent system with uncompromising shelf-life, on-board and calibration stability, while demonstrating long-term, reliable performance characteristics. The reagent also features an extended reportable range, without compromise to low end sensitivity; requires only a small sample to reagent ratio; and is available in a variety of different packaging configurations well suited for any sized laboratory, regardless of workflow demands.

DCL’s Enzymatic Creatinine reagent is optimized for use with fully automated testing systems and a comprehensive listing of instrument applications is readily available for a number of chemistry analyzers. Additional quality-control, calibration and linearity/reference materials are also available from DCL to fully support the assay.
