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 active proinsulin.

Only 1% to 3% of proinsulin is secreted intact. However, because proinsulin has a longer half-life than insulin, circulating proinsulin concentrations are in the range of 5% to 30% of circulating insulin concentrations on a molar basis, with the higher relative proportions seen after meals and, in subjects with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, or early type 2 diabetes. Proinsulin can bind to the insulin receptor and exhibits 5% to 10% of the metabolic activity of insulin.
