A number of studies have shown that glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) concentration provides a better estimate of average hyperglycemia than routine blood glucose concentration. HbA1c measurement in diagnosis of type 2 diabetes has been recommended by American Diabetes Association, World Health Organization and International Diabetes Federation.
Calibration curve for HbA1c fluoroimmunoassay. Capture antibody: anti-HbA10 (Cat.#2-HH10) Detection antibody: anti-HbA1c (cat.#2-GhH). Calibrator: native HbA1c.
Proinsulin, insulin and C-peptide
Assays for proinsulin, insulin and C-peptide are widely used in the monitoring of hypoglycemia, pathogenesis and treatment of diabetes mellitus.
Analysis of proinsulin synthesis and processing, as well as insulin and C-peptide clearance, are very important for the improved understanding of carbohydrate metabolism abnormalities.
