The diagnosis and monitoring of cancer is a complex process, requiring the application of biomarkers to identify tumors, investigate their origins and monitor their development. Rapid access to the right reagents for these biomarkers is vital in order for you to develop and manufacture high-quality immunoassays that are needed to monitor cancer patients’ health after initial treatment.
The Medix Biochemica Group product portfolio provides a single source of antibodies, antigens, and validation biospecimens for your cancer marker immunoassay development projects meaning you have rapid access to critical raw materials.
Many of these raw materials are already validated and widely used in the IVD test development. We also provide many emerging cancer-associated markers. These include:
Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)
Marker to monitor the re-occurrence of a wide range of cancers, including: colorectal cancer, bladder, breast, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, stomach and thyroid.
Discover our CEA products:
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE)
Follow-up marker for neuron-specific enolase-secreting tumors, including: neuroblastoma, small cell lung cancer, medullary thyroid cancer, carcinoid tumors, pancreatic endocrine tumors and melanoma.
Discover our NSE products:
Squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC)
An endogenous protease inhibitor that has elevated expression levels in several cancer types.1 Ideal for monitoring: small cell lung cancer, cervical cancer, and head and neck cancers.
Discover our SCC products:
In addition, we supply both monoclonal antibodies and native or recombinant antigens for a host of other markers, including: PSA, CA 15-3, CA 125, CA 19-9, CA 72-4, CA 50, CA 242, CYFRA 21-1, Hemoglobin, AFP and S100B.
