We specialise in the development and manufacture of diagnostic biomarker-based ELISA Tests and Rapid Tests which can sensitively detect acute kidney injury (AKI). Our tests can provide a complete picture of where damage to the kidneys is occurring and where healthy kidney still remains.
The combined use of these biomarker-based test kits with traditional Serum Creatinine measurement has a number of advantages:
- Ability to locate the exact site of the kidney injury
- Improve drug development & patient care
- Ability to measure nephrotoxicity earlier than possible with Serum Creatine alone
In addition to these ELISA & Rapid Tests for Acute Kidney Injury we also have a unique assay for genotoxicity, OxyDNA.
ELISA Tests and Rapid Tests for AKI
KIM-1 (Kidney Injury Molecule-1) - An early marker of injury to the proximal tubules within the kidney. Learn More about the KIM-1 biomarker and our KIM-1 ELISA Test & Rapid Tests for Human and Rat
NGAL (Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin) - An early biomarker of injury throughout the kidney. Learn More about the NGAL ELISA Test
L-FABP (Liver-Fatty acid Binding Protein) - Identified as a prognosis marker in kidney diseases. Learn more about the L-FABP ELISA Test
Alpha GST (Glutathione S-Transferase) - A biomarker specific for proxmial tubule region of the nephron. Learn more about the Alpha GST biomarker and our Alpha GST ELISA Test
Pi GST (Glutathione S-Transferase) - A biomarker that is specific for the distal tubule region within the nephron. Learn more about Pi GST as a biomarker and our Pi GST ELISA Test
Urinary Collagen IV - Increased levels of Urinary collagen IV can indicate a variety of renal pathologies. Learn More about the Collagen IV Biomarker and our Urinary Collagen IV ELISA Test

Our Genotoxicity Assay
OxyDNA is our unique, patented genotoxicity test. OxyDNA reliably detects 8-oxoguanine (8OG), the major breakdown product resulting from oxidative DNA damage.
OxyDNA Test has uses in a variety of research areas including:
- Skincare Development
- Fertility Research
- Cancer Research
- Toxicology including Environmental Toxicology
