The Gold Standard Just Got Even Brighter

Note: this promotion is intended for first-time customers only who have not previously purchased this kit from Cedarlane and/or Mercodia. Please contact us for further details.

The Mercodia Glucagon ELISA is a CE/IVD-labelled, highly specific and sensitive immunoassay for measuring glucagon in plasma and serum.

A revolutionizing ELISA for sensitive and specific determination of glucagon in human samples. A research tool advancement that allows science to take the next step.

The highly specific monoclonal antibodies used in this assay enables accurate determination of glucagon without significant cross-reactivity to other circulating pro-glucagon derived peptides, e.g. glicentin. Circulating glicentin often cause cross-reactivity problems because of its shared sequence with glucagon.

Mercodia Glucagon ELISA was launched in 2013 and has since contributed to advancing research by, for the first time, allowing specific and sensitive measurements of glucagon. A few years later, a glicentin ELISA was launched that made it possible to accurately measure circulating glicentin, and with help of this assay it was shown that levels of glicentin are increasing during an oGTT in gastrectomy patients to levels not seen in any patient group before1,2. Levels of oxyntomodulin are also increasing, but not to the same extent. When such high levels of glicentin appear in the circulation, also a low cross-reactivity will disturb the measurement of glucagon and give rise to falsely high levels. After discussions with different research groups a sequential protocol was developed that removes the small amount of cross-reactivity to glicentin. As of October 1, 2020, the assay protocol of Mercodia Glucagon ELISA 10-1271-01 is updated to make the sequential protocol default, abolishing cross reactivity to glicentin. To run the old, simultaneous protocol, please refer to Technical Note TN34-161.

Advantages:

  • High sensitivity - 0.75 pmol/L
  • No purification of samples
  • Little or no cross-reactivity to peptides glicentin, oxyntomodulin, proglucagon 1-16 and glucagon 3-29
  • Highly appreciated and often cited assay
  • CE/IVD labeled on select markets – this product is licensed with Health Canada
