Mercodia Glucagon ELISA

Finally Mercodia is releasing the long wished for Mercodia Glucagon ELISA. The assay is now available for purchasing!

Glucagon ELISA has been on the top of our customer’s wish list for a long time. Mercodia’s research and development department has worked on several different prototypes, but up until now, none met the hard quality and performance criteria set up by Mercodia before releasing a new assay.

Specific measurement of glucagon is finally possible

One of the hardest challenges of designing a truly reliable glucagon assay is to overcome the difficulties of creating an antibody specific to glucagon, that does not cross-react to the other peptides derived from pro-glucagon, such as mini-glucagon, GLP-1, GLP-2 and GRPP, oxyntomodulin and the less well-known glicentin. The sequence homology between these peptides makes it difficult to specifically measure them, and this has been a well-known problem for scientists when measuring glucagon for many years. The new Mercodia Glucagon ELISA shows very low cross-reactivity to oxyntomodulin and no cross-reactivity to glicentin, mini-glucagon, GRPP and GLP-1 and -2, which makes it the most specific glucagon assay on the market.
