Carolina Liquid Chemistries Corp. (CLC), also known as The Reagent Company, has been providing chemistry reagents to clinical laboratories for over 25 years. CLC recently added the EZ Vitamin D assay to their menu of products and services.
The EZ Vitamin D assay is intended for use in clinical laboratories for the quantitative determination of 25-OH vitamin D (Vitamin D) in human serum and plasma, using automated chemistry analyzers.
Measurement of Vitamin D is for the assessment of vitamin D deficiency, which has been linked to many diseases including osteoporosis, rickets, and osteomalacia1.
The EZ Vitamin D Assay is the first and only 2-part, latex enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay for use on automated chemistry analyzers. It is liquid stable allowing clinical laboratories to run the EZ Vitamin D test in house, at a cost-effective price, without the need for special instrumentation.
The EZ Vitamin D assay requires no sample pre-treatment or pre-dilution and recognizes both 25-OH Vitamin D2 and D3 equally. The new assay ensures high assay throughput, precision CV of <10% and a linear range from 7.6 - 147.8 ng/mL. It is FDA-cleared and correlates to LC-MS/ MS methods.
