TCDM provides quality controlled in-house assays for several rodent and human biomarkers such as hormones, interleukins and growth factors. Assays and technologies available include e.g.:

  • Rodent and human kits applicable for immunofluorometric assays with Delfia assays (Perkin Elmer Plate Reader Victor X4)
  • Rodent and human ELISA kits adapted to mouse and rat samples applicable for Victor X4 (Perkin Elmer)
  • Rodent and human multiplex immune assays optimized for Luminex 200 Instrument, see e.g., Milliplex assays: *Finland (merckmillipore.com)
  • Diasorin Liason immunoautomatic station is used for various human clinical chemistry assays: LH, FSH, hCG, prolactin, ACTH, SHBG, insulin, cortisol, osteocalcin, sclerostin, PSA: LIAISON® XL | DiaSorin
  • Rodent clinical chemistry assays are carried out in collaboration/service by Movet Oy, being a Finnish animal diagnostic laboratory: Movet
  • Rodent and human steroid profiling in biofluids and tissues is carried out in collaboration with University of Gothenburg. The highly sensitive assays apply LC-MS/MS and or GC-MS/MS including the measurement of testosterone, androstenedione, dihydrotestosterone, androstenedione, dehydroepiandrosterone, progesterone, estrone and estradiol (Nilsson et al., Endocrinology, 156:2492-502, 2015; Ohlsson et al., J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2021 Dec 2:dgab867. doi: 10.1210/clinem/dgab867)
