PliNOSa® K-1600 Assay Kit

An Innovation for Sepsis Screening

TCS Biosciences Ltd is pleased to announce our partnership with R&D Antibodies. R&D Antibodies has delivered high quality research antibodies and immunoassays to the life sciences and research markets since 1984.

The PliNOSa® K-1600 Assay Kit is a novel in vitro diagnostic immunoassay for the early identification of sepsis.

The PliNOSa® test detects inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase (iNOS) on microvesicles in plasma, an innovation in sepsis disease pathology.

The PliNOSa® test can help physicians make better and more informed choices for improved patient management.

iNOS has specifically been implicated in sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock. The PliNOSa® K-1600 assay kit provides accurate measurement of circulating iNOS concentrations in plasma samples via a chemiluminescent sandwich EIA. Each kit is for 96 tests.

The Sepsis Pathology via Microvesicles

The Sepsis Pathology Via Microvesicles

Until now, sepsis has been an intractable disease that has baffled medical researchers for centuries.

Biochemical markers such as procalcitonin (PCT), IL-6, lactate and CRP have lacked the necessary specificity and sensitivity. These assays often fail to help physicians and clinicians to identify at-risk patients who are progressing down the sepsis pathway.

The PliNOSa® test helps physicians assess a patient's risk of developing sepsis as much as 48 hours before recognisable symptoms appear.
