MassTrack Immunosuppressants XE Kit

Measures immunosuppressant drug levels

Waters Corp, Milford, Mass, introduces a new research use only (RUO) kit for quantitative measurement of Tacrolimus, Sirolimus, Everolimus, and Cyclosporin A. The MassTrak™ Immunosuppressants XE RUO Kit is for clinical research laboratories seeking an alternative to immunoassay kits for quantitative measurement of immunosuppressant drug levels. Each kit includes reagents, controls, and calibrators, a tuning mixture for the mass spectrometer, and an analytical column for performing up to 500 determinations per kit. Used with Waters’ ACQUITY TQD System, the kit achieves high specificity in measuring the target analyte in the presence of drug metabolites and addresses some of the analytical weaknesses of immunoassay immunosuppressant drug measurement.
