A cost efficient solution:

  • Ready to use liquid format - minimizing preparation time
  • Pre-calibrated reagent avoiding a costly & time-consuming calibration step
  • High stability & optimized volume packaging to avoid wastage

Compliant with Gold Standard performances:

  • Negative Predictive Value 99%
  • Absence of hook effect until 25 µg FEU/ml
  • Slope check and post dilution function (fully automatic & semi-automatic systems)
  • Cut-off value at 0.5 µg FEU/ml
