Increased Confidence in Steroid Hormone Analysis

Highlights:

  • Comprehensive:
    Quantitative profiling of 17 steroid hormones, making the kit ideal for comprehensive analysis of steroid hormone metabolism in research endeavors.
  • Reproducible:
    The kit has repeatedly proven to provide highly accurate results in ring trials by DGKL (German United Society for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine).
  • Standardized:
    The kit includes standardized reagents, as well as validated protocols for sample preparation and mass spectrometric analysis.
  • High throughput:
    Up to 500 biofluid samples per LC-MS instrument per week (other matrices have successfully been tested).

Steroid hormones exert multiple biological functions. For example, they are involved in regulating glucose and mineral levels, as well as cell growth and proliferation. Steroid hormones are metabolites synthesized from cholesterol and primarily produced in the adrenal glands and gonads. As compared to other techniques, mass spectrometry offers the opportunity to quantify multiple steroid hormones in a single run with a higher accuracy.

The AbsoluteIDQ® Stero17 Kit provides a comprehensive solution for steroid hormone profiling. From a single serum sample, the kit enables the quantification of up to 17 steroid hormones from five steroid hormone classes:

- Progestagens
- Glucocorticoids
- Mineralocorticoids
- Androgens
- Estrogens
