Gastrin-17 Advanced ELISA Kit, 96 wells
The BIOHIT Gastrin-17 kit is a microplate-based quantitative enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the determination of human amidated Gastrin-17 from plasma or serum samples.
The Gastrin-17 Advanced ELISA is based on a sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique with a Gastrin-17 specific capture antibody adsorbed on a microplate and a detection antibody labeled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP).
This test is intended to identify Helicobacter pylori infected patients who have an advanced atrophic gastritis in the gastric antrum – these patients have an abnormally low plasma- or serum- Gastrin-17 - and who, correspondingly, are at an increased risk of gastric cancer and of peptic ulcer disease.
Gastrin-17 is also a useful surrogate marker for basal acid output, with high Gastrin-17 being a marker of hypo- or achlorhydria, and low fasting Gastrin-17 being an indicator of high intragastric acidity in H. pylori negative patients.
This assay is part of the BIOHIT GastroPanel product.
