Eagle Biosciences is excited to announce some new product offerings from Svar Life Science. These new products include a C4d ELISA Kit and a Total Complement ELISA Kit.
Svar is a Swedish Life Science company that has been providing diagnostic laboratory services for nearly 30 years. Founded as Euro Diagnostic in 1992, the company rebranded in 2018 to Svar, which means “answers” in Swedish. They specialize in autoimmunity, inflammatory diseases and oncology. In addition to providing dedicated laboratory services, they produce cell based assays and immunoassays.
The Complement C4d ELISA Assay Kit is intended for the semi-quantitative determination of C4d in human plasma. The complement system is an essential part of the immune system that assists antibodies and phagocytes in clearing cellular debris, promoting inflammation and attacking pathogen cell membranes. The C4d protein is a product of the classical and lectin pathways of the complement system. C4d as a biomarker is associated with antibody-mediated rejection, as well as with diagnosing and monitoring Systematic Lupus Erythematous (SLE) and other autoimmmune diseases.
The Total Complement Functional Screen ELISA used for the qualitative determination of functional classical, MBL, and alternative complement pathways in human serum. This kit combines principles of the hemolytic assay for complement activation with the use of labeled antibodies specific for neoantigen produced as a result of complement activation. The amount of neoantigen generated is proportional to the functional activity of complement pathways.
