R-PLEX Human Cystatin C Antibody Set

R-PLEX Human Cystatin C Antibody Set Overview
The R-PLEX Human Cystatin C Antibody Set includes a matched capture and detection antibody pair and calibrator for the quick and easy measurement of Cystatin C in biological samples. R-PLEX products leverage MSD’s electrochemiluminescence technology for better sensitivity and a larger dynamic range than traditional ELISAs. R-PLEX matched antibody sets enable the development of singleplex and multiplex immunoassays. Individual assays may be developed using MSD avidin- or streptavidin-coated plates. Custom multiplex assays with any combination of R-PLEX analytes, as well as R-PLEX plus U-PLEX analytes can be developed on U-PLEX MULTI-SPOT plates.

Cystatin C Analyte

Description - Cystatin C (cystatin 3, CST3, ARMD11, HEL-S-2) is a non-glycosylated proteinase inhibitor and a member of the type 2 cystatin superfamily. Studies have shown that cystatin C is a more precise indicator of kidney damage and dysfunction than traditional clinical markers such as BUN (blood urea nitrogen) or serum creatinine. Cystatin C has been hypothesized to be a more sensitive measure of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) than creatinine clearance.
