Reagents

Randox Reagents are internationally recognised as being of the highest quality, offering reliable and rapid results. Our product portfolio consists of 115 clinical assays, covering a range of testing panels, including: routine chemistry, cardiology and lipids, diabetes, therapeutic drugs monitoring, drugs of abuse testing, antioxidants and veterinary testing. Randox are continuously striving to improve diagnostic solutions worldwide.  As a result, Randox have produced a number of niche and superior performance assays.

Such assays include:

Small-dense LDL Cholesterol (sdLDL-C)

A sub-type of LDL Cholesterol, sdLDL-C is more atherogenic than the large-buoyant LDL Cholesterol (lbLDL-C) and can more easily permeate the inner arterial wall. Research indicates that individuals with a predominance of sdLDL-C have a 3-fold increased risk of myocardial infarction. As such sdLDL-C is a valuable screening tool of CVD risk.

  • Rapid Analysis as results can be produced in as little as ten minutes, facilitating faster patient diagnosis and treatment plan implementation
  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents for ease of use and convenience
  • Direct, automated test as the Randox sdLDL-C assay is specifically designed for use on automated analysers making the test more convenient and efficicent
  • Applications available with instrument specific settings for a wide range of analysers
  • Dedicated sdLDL-C control and calibrator available for a full testing package
  • Clearance Method

Soluble Transferrin Receptor (sTfR)

sTfR, a soluble form of transferrin, is a marker or iron status. In iron deficiency anaemia, sTfR levels are significantly increased, however, remain normal in the anaemia of inflammation. As such, sTfR measurement is useful in the differential diagnosis of microcytic anaemia.

• Excellent correlation coefficient of r=0.977 when compared against other commercially available methods
Liquid ready-to-use reagent for convenience and ease-of-use
• Excellent measuring range of 0.5-11.77mg/L, comfortable detecting levels outside of the normal range
Latex Enhanced Immunoturbidimetric method delivering high performance
Stable to expiry when store at +2 to +8°C

Vanadate Oxidation Bilirubin

Bilirubin levels are extremely valuable in the diagnosis and monitoring of liver diseases including: hepatitis, cirrhosis and gallstones.  Other conditions characterised by elevated bilirubin levels include haemolytic anaemic and sickle cell disease.  It is vital that bilirubin levels are tested in new-borns where jaundice has not resolved itself within 8-14 days as elevated levels can indicate a problem with the formation of the bile ducts or irregular metabolism in the liver.

  • Superior Vanadate Oxidation methodology does not suffer from interferences from non-conjugated bilirubin unlike the diazo-based methods
  • Limited interference from haemoglobin and lipids
  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents for convenience and ease-of-use
  • No pre-step required whereas other commercially available bilirubin assays may involve a pre-step, requiring two assay components to be mixed together.  The Randox Vanadate Oxidation method eliminates this step, increasing testing efficiency
  • Applications available detailing instrument-specific settings for a wide range of biochemistry analysers
  • Stable until expiry when stored at +2 to +8°C
  • Complementary controls and calibrators available for a full testing package

  Cystatin C

Randox Cystatin C, a more superior marker of renal function compared to the traditional Creatinine test.  Randox Cystatin C is extremely sensitive to small changes in glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) and can therefore detect early reductions in GFR.  Conversely, Cystatin C is a particularly useful marker of renal function in patients where creatinine measurements are not reliable e.g., individuals who are: obese, malnourished, have liver cirrhosis or reduced muscle mass.  Furthermore, unlike Creatinine, Cystatin C does not have a ’blind area’, allowing for earlier diagnosis on chronic kidney disease (CKD).

  • Exceptional correlation coefficient of r=1.00 when compared against other commercially available methods
  • Wide measuring range of 0.4 – 10mg/L, comfortably detecting levels outside of the healthy range 0.57 – 1.05mg/L.
  • Stable until expiry when stored at +2 to +8°C
  • Applications available detailing instrument-specific settings for a wide range of biochemistry analysers
  • Liquid ready-to-use reagents for convenience and ease-of-use
  • Latex Enhanced Immunoturbidimetric method delivering high performance
  • Cystatin C control and calibrator available for a full testing package
