DCL Introduces New Liquid-Stable Total Bilirubin L3K Reagent

Oxford, CT . . . Diagnostic Chemicals Limited (DCL) has added a new high performance, fully liquid-stable Total Bilirubin reagent to its growing portfolio of clinical chemistry products. The combination of improved performance characteristics with regard to common interference effects and an extended linearity makes DCL’s Total Bilirubin L3K reagent a useful clinical tool for medical laboratory professionals in physician’s office, hospital, veterinary testing and commercial reference laboratories alike.

Using a modified DCA method, this novel, two-part reagent system quantitatively and accurately measures concentrations of Total Bilirubin in serum specimens. DCL’s Total Bilirubin L3K reagent incorporates unique technology which provides a reportable range up to 30 mg/dL, without compromise to low-end sensitivity. The reagent also demonstrates uncompromising shelf-life, on-board and calibration stability, while maintaining long-term, reliable performance characteristics.
DCL’s Total Bilirubin L3K reagent also features virtually no interference effects from lipemia, hemolysis and ascorbic acid and utilizes a small sample (typically four (4) uL) requirement, making it ideal for pediatric, geriatric, veterinary and biomedical research testing. Available in a variety of different packaging configurations, the assay is well suited for any sized laboratory, regardless of workflow demands.

DCL’s Total Bilirubin L3K 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 and calibration materials are also available to fully support the assay.
