Seratrol Vitamin D Free Human Serum reference material developed to address lab-to-lab portability and commutability across multiple measurement platforms
Temecula, Calif. - July 17, 2012 -
Golden West Biologicals, Inc. (GWB) is pleased to announce the introduction of Seratrol Vitamin D Free Human Serum for use as reference material in the development of assays and calibrators.
"It's important for in vitro diagnostic device manufacturers to deliver properly calibrated Vitamin D assays," said Tammy Guenthner, Manufacturing Manager at GWB. "Our Seratrol Vitamin D Free Human Serum product line has been developed to consistently match the human serum matrix as closely as possible, which leads to reliable Vitamin D values."
Seratrol Vitamin D Free Human Serum is key to in vitro diagnostic manufacturers in developing calibrators and quality control reference material in the development of Vitamin D immunoassays. Seratrol Vitamin D Free Human Serum is processed from human plasma delivering the sensitivity required for 25-OH Vitamin D (<1ng/ml by LC-MS and <4ng/ml by immunoassay) and 1,25 di-OH Vitamin D (<5pg/ml by LC-MS), while maintaining a normal protein electrophoretic pattern and endogenous levels of Vitamin D binding protein.
"The Seratrol Vitamin D Free Serum product line has been developed over the last two years by working closely with our customers," said Brian Golie, Chief Executive Officer of GWB. "Compared to other manufacturers, we're providing our customers with a great value because we've been able to consistently deliver a product with the sensitivity and inherent characteristics of human plasma."
Seratrol Vitamin D Free Serum is currently available in large lot sizes for worldwide distribution. To order, or to request additional information, contact GWB customer service at (888) 690-0963.
