BioSupply expands its salivary diagnostics product range

Posted on: 10 Jan 18

January 10 2018, Shipley, UK.

The use of saliva is rapidly becoming the specimen of choice for many conventional medical care situations. Various emerging areas of health monitoring and measurement are befitting from the fact that this method allows pooled samples from multiple collections to be evaluated, this makes it possible to obtain accurate results even when there are marked diurnal fluctuations. Other advantages of using saliva include: it is non-invasive, multiple specimens are possible, painless process, can be available and collected any time of the day without any medical assistance. The measurement of steroid hormones using saliva makes it also possible to detect the “free” or biologically active fraction, this is not possible using serum or plasma methods.

New salivary ELISA kits include:

Secretory IgA: It represents one of the main immunoglobulin present in mucus secretion from the salivary glands, mammary glands, tear glands, respiratory system, genitourinary and gastrointestinal tract.

Alpha Amylase: A digestive enzyme which functions in breaking down starch to maltose, it is predominately synthesised in the acinar cells and is stored in the secretory granules.

Free Androstenedione: A common precursor for the female and male sex hormones, it is a steroid hormone which is formed as an intermediate during the production of testosterone and estrone/estradiol.
