MALMÖ, Sweden, June 2, 2014. Euro Diagnostica, a full service diagnostics solutions company and Dako, an Agilent Technologies company and a worldwide provider of cancer diagnostics, have entered a partnership to supply chromogranin A ELISA kits to the global market.

"We are proud to present this partnership which has allowed us to introduce a new and improved Chromogranin A kit manufactured by Euro Diagnostica to our customers. The CgAnalyze Kit has an excellent correlation to the previous Dako Chromogranin A ELISA kit and the assay procedures are very similar which enables a smooth and fast transition between the kits," says Simon Østergaard, General Manager, Head of Reagent Partnership Division, part of Agilent’s Genomics and Diagnostics Business.

"Dako is the perfect partner for us," says Else Beth Trautner, CEO of Euro Diagnostica. "Chromogranin A is a key marker for patients suffering from neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and our easy-to-use assay is highly appreciated by the end-users. With Dako´s solid expertise of biomarkers in the oncology field, combined with global presence, we are confident that our collaboration will be successful".

The CgA kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection and quantitation of chromogranin A in human plasma and serum. The results of the assay may be used as an aid in the diagnosis of chromogranin A secreting neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), such as phaeochromocytomas and carcinoids.
