Intrinsic Will Be Presenting An Abstract At Ash 2021

Intrinsic LifeSciences will be presenting a poster abstract at the 2021 American Society of Hematology Meeting in Atlanta, GA entitled, Performance Evaluation of Commercially Available Kits for the Measurement of Human Hepcidin. Over the last 20 years, since the hormone peptide, hepcidin, was discovered, there have been many commercially available kits to measure hepcidin in human blood samples. Given there is no standard in hepcidin testing, the available kits vary widely in quality. Intrinsic LifeSciences undertook an effort to compare different manufactures’ hepcidin ELISA kits examining their accuracy, precision, linearity, and a functional test of their ability to predict a patient’s iron status, low hepcidin is indicative of iron deficiency. Intrinsic LifeSciences enlisted an independent contract research organization to run the most popular kits based on literature citation and found a wide variety in the hepcidin value measured. Take a look at our abstract.
