EURIA Glucagon is the only IVD approved Glucagon radioimmunoassay (RIA) in Japan and will be used by leading laboratories in the country.

EURIA Glucagon is specific for pancreatic glucagon with no cross-reactivity with gut GLI (Glucagon-Like-Immunoreactivity). The sensitivity of the assay, judged as 2 SD change from zero calibrator, is 3 pmol/L.

Background RIA - Radioimmunoassay

Radioimmunoassay (RIA) was first introduced in 1960 when hormone levels in the blood for the first time could be detected by an In Vitro assay. Due to the superior sensitivity of RIA, the technique continues to be widely used for accurate determination of small molecules, large molecules, peptides and proteins in biological samples.
