Assay kits are used to carry out analyses in a broad scope of applications including the study of targets such as drugs, molecules, disease pathways, chemical elements or compounds, and organisms. They are a routine procedure in the modern pharmaceutical, medical and forensic world as well as research and university laboratories around the globe. Assay kits come with all the necessary reagents, instructions and protocols for fast and efficient processing, allowing for repeatable results.
Diabetes and obesity assay kits are clinical lab tests used to determine overall health and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the body's regulation of blood glucose is impaired because of lack of insulin. There are two types of diabetes; type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes. Whereas, type 2 diabetes is often regarded as non-insulin dependent or maturity onset. Also, obesity or excess weight predisposes type 2 diabetes. When testing a patient's risk for diabetes or other weight-related disorders, some key tests include, but are not limited to, insulin, glucose, HbA1c, C-reactive protein (CRP), ghrelin, cortisol, and leptin.
