At the upcoming AACC exhibition, Kronus, Star, Idaho, will feature its zinc transporter 8 autoantibody (ZnT8Ab) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit for the semiquantitative determination of autoantibodies to zinc transporter (ZnT8) in human serum.

According to the company, the kit is useful as an aid in the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes mellitus, or autoimmune mediated diabetes.

ZnT8 is a member of the large cation efflux family and is one of the major targets of type 1 diabetes autoimmunity. ZnT8 autoantibodies may be present in patients diagnosed with diabetes and are useful as a marker for T1DM testing.
