Metabolism is the complex network of metabolic reactions happening in the cells of living organisms under different conditions in their life cycle.
Dysbalance in regulation and control of this pathways can result in a variety of diseases. A very well understood example of this type of control is the regulation of the carbohydrate metabolism by insulin.
To facilitate metabolic analysis, a wide variety of sensitive, accurate and straightforward cell metabolism assays is offered, covering the full spectrum of anabolic and catabolic pathways. Most of the assays can be performed in 96-well plates, and the results are analyzed by fluorometric or colorimetric methods.
Diabetes and Obesity
We offer numerous assays and ELISA kits to assist researchers with quantification of analytes associated with diabetes, obesity and related diseases for example insulin, leptin and adiponectin, and a large collection of products derived from human diabetes type 2 disease tissue.
Cardiovascular disease is comprised of several different diseases that affect the heart itself and / or the circulatory system. We offer a comprehensive set of sensitive ELISA Kits, antibodies and purified proteins for markers involved in cardiovascular disease. This is complemented by our large collection of human cardiovascular disease tissue products.
Visit our overview on lipid metabolism assays and find tools and assays for, e.g. cholesterol, fatty acids related assays, cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), or plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP).
Browsing our cell metabolism assays you can find sensitive assays for all types of molecules involved in the metabolic pathways of amino acids and carbohydrates. This includes cofactors, intermediary metabolites and metabolic enzymes as well as secondary messenger assays.
Carbohydrate metabolism plays an important role in many disease states such as diabetes, obesity, and galactosemia. A wide variety of colorimetric or fluorometric assay kits are available for the accurate and straightforward measurement of various carbohydrates. In addition, sensitive insulin and glucagon ELISA kits are offered.
