Carolina Liquid Chemistries Corp (CLC), Greensboro, NC, has launched its new EZ vitamin D assay. The assay is intended for use in clinical laboratories for the quantitative determination of 25-OH vitamin D in human serum and plasma, using an automated chemistry analyzer. Measurement of vitamin D is used to evaluate patients for vitamin D deficiency, which has been linked to many diseases, including osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and rickets.

The EZ vitamin D assay is a two-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 assay requires no sample pretreatment or predilution and recognizes both 25-OH Vitamin D2 and D3 equally. It also ensures high assay throughput, precision CV of <10%, and a linear range of 7.6–147.8 ng/mL. The EZ vitamin D assay is FDA-cleared and correlates to liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry methods.
