Some of the medical specialties that the product menu covers are:

Endocrinology is the medical specialty that addresses hormones and the endocrine glands and tissues that secrete them. Endocrine functions are inherent to gynecology, andrology, in-vitro fertilization, bone and mineral metabolism, gastric diseases, hypertension, neuropeptides, pituitary, growth hormones, and thyroid function, amongst others.

Some of the assays available are 17OH-Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Androstenedione, Cortisol, Estrone, Estradiol, Renin and Aldosterone.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease.  It is characterized clinically by progressive deterioration of memory and pathologically by histopathological changes including extracellular deposits of amyloid-beta (A-beta) peptides forming senile plaques (SP) and the intracellular neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) of hyperphosphorylated tau in the brain.

Neurofilaments are the backbone of the neuronal cytoskeleton. Neurofilament light is found to be elevated in neurodegenerative disorders that are associated with the destruction of white matter (substantia alba).

Typically these are:

  • Parkinson’s disease (PD)
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

Humor Diagnostica as distributors of IBL International products offers the largest selection of ELISAs and antibodies for research on the APP-cascade including Amyloid-ß and Tau.

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person others are transmitted via bites from insects or animals.  All assays offered are based on detecting specific antibody classes (IgA, IgG, IgM) in serum, plasma or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for example Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Herpes virus (HSV), Influenza, Malaria and many more.
Autoimmune diseases are chronic inflammatory processes that can be either organ-specific or systemic.  IBL International offers a comprehensive autoantibody product line offering assays for Myasthenia gravis, Rheumatic diseases, Vasculitis, Nephritis, Thrombosis, Celiac disease, Thyroid diseases and Diabetes.

Adverse immune food reactions that are not IgE-, but IgG or IgG4-mediated are often called food intolerances. They are characterized by less severe reactions.  The FinTest is a product line for assessing individual sensitization to food allergens. FinTest assays are intended for quantitative determination of specific IgG or IgG4 in serum, plasma or capillary blood.  The flexible configuration of the tests (e.g. allergen distribution) and the test formats is an advantage and can be customized for clients need to 184 allergens (2 plates), 276 allergens (3 plates) or even 368 allergens (4 plates).

Humor Diagnostica is the distributor for R-Biopharm gastroenterology products.  The R-Biopharm gastroenterology product portfolio is dedicated to the advanced diagnosis of gut-related diseases.  These products cover diseases such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS), markers for colon cancer screening that increases the probability to detect adenomas in colon cancer and markers for the detection of pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatitis.

Tests available include:

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS) – Calprotectin, α1-Antitrypsin, sIgA
  • Pancreatic diagnostic assays – Pankreatic Elastase, Pankrin® ELISE

Calprotectin is an indicator of gastrointestinal inflammation which is used for differentiation of IBD and IBS and for treatment monitoring.  α1-Antitrypsin and sIgA are indicators for the integrity of the gut wall, relevant for monitoring and diagnosing the Leaky Gut Syndrome.

The combined testing of Haemoglobin and Haemo-/Haptoglobin Complex increases the probability to detect ademonas.   Pancreatic Elastase and Prankrin ELISA are markers for the detection pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatitis.
