PRODUCT NAME: AccuBind Insulin
INTENDED USE: The quantitative determination of insulin concentration in human serum by a Microplate Enzyme Immunoassay.
PRODUCT OVERVIEW: Human insulin is responsible for the metabolism and storage of carbohydrates. As a result of biofeedback the insulin levels increase with intake of sugars and decline when sugar content is low for absorption. In the diabetic population the mechanism of insulin production is impaired because of genetic predispositions (Type I) or because of lifestyle and/or hereditary factors (Type II). In such cases either the insulin production has to be boosted by medication or it has to be supplemented by oral or intravenous methods. The quantitative determination of insulin can help in dose selection for the patient. Pancreatic tumors secrete abnormally high levels of insulin and thus cause hypoglycemia.
