TIMP-2 Lateral Flow Kit
The unique B.I.T.S.® TIMP-2 Lateral Flow Kit has been developed by Mologic to provide fast, accurate assays of TIMP-2 in urine and serum. Its unique because it has been tested against TIMP-1,, IL-1 beta, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF alpha, MMP-8 and MMP-9 for cross-reactivity. The B.I.T.S.® assay needs no sample work-up.
The simple procedure makes it compatible with any research laboratory with basic lateral flow visualisation.
Refined and simplified step-wise procedure minimises operator error and significantly reduces time between sampling and results. Time saved in executing the assay will give you more time to do more research.
Kits manufactured to the highest quality by Mologic scientists who have developed these assays from scratch to ensure stability and batch to batch reproducibility are better than industry standards. Despite this commitment to quality, the price of the kits is in line with the competition – quality without compromise.
Mologic has invested time and resources over the past 5 years into the task of producing anti-TIMP-2 antibodies of the highest possible quality, with tailor-made specificity and sensitivity to ensure that the assay gives the right sensitivity and specificity for use in research on metastatic and non-metastatic malignancies as well as chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and periodontitis .
The structure and function of the extracellular matrix (ECM) is vital in a number of physiological processes including embryonic development, tissue repair and remodelling . ECM structure is ultimately regulated by the balance of extracellular proteases and protease inhibitors. Imbalance of this is implicated in rheumatoid arthritis, tumour cell invasion and metastasis .
