Vivaproducts has supplied protein concentration and purification products to clinical diagnostic and forensic laboratories for years. Our BJP and Vivaspin® ultrafiltration devices have been used by leading reference labs to concentrate urine and spinal fluid proteins prior to electrophoresis for diagnosis of multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, meningitis and other diseases. They are also used to concentrate bacterial and fungal antigens prior to immunoassays to detect Legionella, Streptococcus B, Pneumonia and Coccidioides.
The centrifugal Vivaspin® products have also been effective in analysis of free drugs and hormones. They provide rapid separation of free insulin, T3, T4, testosterone, cortisol, phenytoin, valproic acid and carbamazepine from those analytes bound to serum proteins.
Vivaproducts also supplies our customers with light, ergonomically designed pipettes from Sartorius/Biohit as well as centrifuges from Hettich.
