BBI Solutions, Cardiff, United Kingdom, has released a high-purity intrinsic factor protein for the detection of vitamin B12. With a high affinity and specificity to the vitamin, the porcine tool is well suited for use in immunoassays. Specifically, it features purity greater than 95% and aids in the diagnosis of pernicious anemia, which is caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency. As the lone commercial manufacturer of the protein, BBI seeks to offer supply security by fully developing the product at its own UK-based facility and producing it at sufficient scale to meet the growing market’s future demands. The intrinsic factor is available now for testing. To request an evaluation sample or for more information, visit BBI Solutions.
