When it comes to measuring pancreatic Beta cell function, go with the Pro!

TECO® Intact Proinsulin ELISA

Save time and guess work by selectively measuring only intact proinsulin.

Proinsulin is synthesized in pancreatic β-cells and secreted as insulin. Insulin resistance (IR) or hyperglycemia causes increased secretion and finally secretion disorder. Intact proinsulin levels in plasma then increase while insulin levels decrease. Elevated fasting intact proinsulin is a specific biomarker for β-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance.

The TECO® Intact Proinsulin ELISA measures intact proinsulin, providing a direct measure of pancreatic β-cell function.

Intact Proinsulin ELISA
