IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Bone Metabolism Marker, Procollagen Peptide
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to determine the extension (either amino- or carboxy- terminal) peptides of collagen type I, II, or III . Procollagen peptide extensions are cleaved from collagen during fiber formation and circulate in blood. The level of procollagen peptides in blood is not specific to bone formation, thus they are not considered specific markers of bone formation.
