Quantitative insulin assays can now be run on standard chemistry analyzers without the hazardous radioactivity of radioimmunoassays (RIAs) or the high cost of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs). The K-ASSAY® insulin reagent from Kamiya Biomedical Co is used for the quantitative determination of human insulin in serum or plasma. The insulin reagent was developed for use on most chemistry analyzers. It uses a mouse monoclonal antibody for high specificity. Reagents are available in a ready-to-use liquid form and do not require mixing, dilution, or any sample preparation.
