Comparison between the AroCell TK 210 ELISA and TK1 enzyme activity assays

AroCell recently completed a comparison between their 210 ELISA with the ABCAM TK1 ELISA and the Gold-Standard Tritiated TK1 Activity Assay to confirm the diagnostic accuracy of each kit. The results found that the AroCell kit is an accurate assay for the determination of thymidine kinase 1.

AroCell TK 210 ELISA:

A Novel Proliferation Biomarker to 

Study Hematological Malignancies

Thymidine Kinase 1 (TK1) has been long known as a valuable biomarker of cellular proliferation. However, previous methods have been based on enzyme activity measurements that are complex and require specialized equipment. Introducing the AroCell TK 210 ELISA as a new valuable assay for TK1 that brings the simplicity and robustness in a widely available assay kit (sold only in the US by Eagle Biosciences). Based on unique monoclonal antibodies (TK 210 epitope), the AroCell TK 210 ELISA Assay Kit creates an easy to use assay and provides new opportunities for studying cellular proliferation, tumor cell turnover and therapy response in subjects with hematological malignancies. 

During this webinar, you will learn the importance of proliferation biomarkers, and their key role in monitoring malignancies, as well as the aiding in making prognoses which could provide early insights into the effects of therapy. Since Thymidine kinase 1 (TK1) is a well-known proliferation biomarker, studying this biomarker has been based on enzyme activity methods and may underestimate serum TK1 levels, particularly in subjects with solid tumors. Improved immunoassays of TK1 based on the TK 210 antigen (AroCell TK 210 ELISA) has shown promising insight of studying these hematological malignancies. 


Meet the Speakers: 

Staffan Eriksson | Professor in Medical and Physilogical Chemistry at the

Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Steffan Eriksson has been active in the research of medical biochemistry and Thymidine Kinase for many decades, and has published over 120 scientific studies related to these topics. He is also founder of AroCell AB and one of the inventors of the TK 210 ELISA Assay test for measuring cell grown and turnover. 


Martin Shaw | AroCell Development Manager

Martin Shaw has had a long experience in the development and application of many novel biomarkers. He has participated in industry-wide consortia on the qualification of biomarkers for application in pre-clinical and clinical trials. He has spoken at many congresses including being a guest speaker at the FDA.
