April 17, 2014:  Eagle Biosciences, Inc. is pleased to announce the product launch of a new Homoarginine ELISA assay kit which will be the first commercially available ELISA kit for homoarginine for researchers. Homoarginine is a non-essential cationic amino acid which is formed from lysine and show characteristics similar to arginine.

Dan Keefe, President of Eagle Biosciences, is thrilled about the launch of this kit, “This is an exciting time for Eagle. Studies have identified homoarginine as a potentially useful predictor of cardiovascular events and mortality as well as a possible indicator of chronic kidney disease. The homoarginine assay is a perfect complement to the gold standard assays we offer for ADMA, SDMA, and Arginine.”

Eagle anticipates offering promotional pricing in the coming months for researchers measuring Homoarginine, ADMA, SDMA, or Arginine. These assay kits are currently for research use only.
