The unique assays available on the market to measure Acylated & Unacylated Ghrelin whatever the blood collection procedure used!
Those assays are called SPI-Bio Ghrelin Easy Sampling EIA Assays and are additional to our current SPI-Bio Ghrelin Express EIA Assays developed and manufactured by Bertin Pharma.
The Ghrelin Easy Sampling EIA kits allow any scientist to assay Acylated and non-Acylated Ghrelin with very high sensitivity with appropriate protease inhibition allowing various collection procedures.
