Ostase® BAP

Product Description

The IDS-iSYS Ostase® BAP assay is an in vitro diagnostic device intended for the quantitative determination of bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), an indicator of osteoblastic activity, in human serum or plasma on the IDS system.

Results are to be used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory data to aid the clinician in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis and Paget’s disease.

Ostase® is a registered trademark of Hybritech Incorporated, a subsidiary of Beckman Coulter, Inc.

  • Accurate and reliable results – providing a useful tool to identify non-adherent and non-responders to therapy.
  • BAP levels are not affected by circadian variation – ease of sample collection, handling, and storage.
  • BAP is cleared by the liver, not by the kidneys – levels are not affected by renal function.
  • Clinically relevant measurement – as recommended in KDIGO guidelines.
  • Complements the existing bone turnover panel aiding management of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases.
  • Ability to combine the bone turnover markers with the established IDS-iSYS 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D– aiding management of osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases.
