AxSYM xtra is a unique agreement with Abbott Diagnostics to add our range of assays to the already comprehensive menu of the widely-placed AxSYM immunoassay analyser - (view the Abbott website)*.
The range comprises tests for D-Dimer, which is used to detect deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and Active-B12 (also known as HoloTC or holo-transcobalamin) for the effective identification of vitamin B12 deficiency, particularly in the 30% or so of total vitamin B12 assays which are indeterminate.
A test to detect Anti-CCP antibodies, as an aid in the early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, is also available, together with an immunoassay for HbA1c using our patented technology. The latter assay is used for measuring the effectiveness of blood glucose control in diabetes and increasingly its utility is being recognised as a front line screen for diabetes diagnosis.
