Launch of the IDS Cortisol assay on the IDS-iSYS Multi-Discipline Automated System

The IDS Cortisol assay is a fully automated CLIA assay for the quantitative determination of cortisol in human serum and plasma samples.

Measurement of Cortisol concentrations can be used to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the adrenal gland, such as hypo- and hyper-cortisolism, most commonly referred to as Addison’s disease and Cushing’s syndrome.  Many common signs of Cushing’s such as obesity, high blood pressure, and increased blood glucose are frequently observed in today’s society.

The IDS Cortisol assay further extends the IDS Hypertension panel. The IDS Cortisol assay is available in the European market and other countries which accept the CE mark.

Our offer is a complete group of differentiating assays within the hypertension panel, that includes Renin, Aldosterone, ACTH and Salivary Cortisol and our new Cortisol assay for plasma and serum.

These assays allow laboratories to improve their workflow with the IDS automated platform.
