LIAISON® Growth Hormone Disorders Diagnostic Solution

Growth hormones are the main reason for a delay in physical development or sterility. 

A growth disorder is an alteration of normal development that is due to hormonal dysfunctions. Diasorin offers a solution for the determination of IGF-1 and hGH.




LIAISON® hGH assay uses chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA) technology for the in vitro quantitative determination of human growth hormone in human serum specimens.



The LIAISON® IGF-I kit uses chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA) technology for the quantitative determination of the insulin-like growth factor (somatomedin C or Sm-C, IGF-1) in human serum.

Indications for use


Quantitative assays for immune detection and status monitoring of growth disorders

Target patient

Adults and children

Use area

Endocrinology, gynecology, internal medicine and pediatrics

Solution for the diagnosis of growth hormone-related disorders - Diasorin


Excess or deficiency of the human growth hormone (hGH, or GH) can lead to a variety of medical disorders with potentially severe impacts at any age.
Binding protein levels (Insulin-like growth factor 1, or IGF-1) blood tests show whether the growth problem is caused by the pituitary gland.

How it works

LIAISON® Growth Hormone Disorders Diagnostic Solution identifies diseases and conditions caused by either a deficiency, or overproduction of growth hormone.

Determination of human growth hormone in serum specimens



GH works through a growth factor called IGF-1.6. A normal plasma or serum IGF-I concentration is strong evidence against GH deficiency.



Evaluate pituitary function.
A low IGF-I value implies GH deficiency and requires additional testing to determine whether GH secretion is subnormal.



Monitor the effectiveness of growth hormone-based treatment.
Measurement of IGF-I is also useful in assessing change of nutritional status.

Why use LIAISON® Growth Hormone Disorders Diagnostic Solution

Early detection of abnormal growth, and identification of the underlying cause, is critical for appropriate treatment.
It requires only a small volume of sample.
The Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I) helps achieve faster diagnosis of growth disorders and can be a valuable aid for monitoring growth hormone-based treatment. Human growth hormone (hGH) is mainly requested for patient showing symptoms of growth abnormalities, it also helps in the evaluation of the pituitary gland function.
