LIAISON® XL 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.
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.
