A Unique and Efficient Approach to Sarcoidosis Management
Sarcoidosis is a disease characterized by the growth of tiny collections of inflammatory cells (granulomas) in any part of the body, most commonly the lungs and lymph nodes. But it can also affect the eyes, skin, heart and other organs. The cells found at the outside borders of granulomas can produce increased amounts of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). The level of ACE in the blood may increase when sarcoidosis-related granulomas develop.
Our ACE assay allows laboratories to provide clinicians with an efficient tool for aiding the diagnosis and monitoring of sarcoidosis:
A fully automated, spectrophotometric ACE assay standardized against a commercially available colorimetric method 2,3
An efficient test with less than 15 minutes to a direct and quantitative ACE result
Perform ACE test alongside your routine and specialty immunoassays from same serum sample tube.
