Albumin

Albumin is a small protein (66.3 kDa) and the most abundant in human plasma, representing 55-65% of the total protein mass. It has different biological functions, such as the maintenance of osmotic pressure between the vascular and extravascular spaces, and the transport and storage of a wide variety of products (ions, hormones, medications, bilirubin, etc.) and, when catabolized, may serve as an endogenous source of amino acids. 

Hyperalbuminuria is observed only in case of acute dehydration. 

Hypoalbuminuria can be caused by a decrease in synthesis or by increased catabolism, or a combination of both factors. It is related to numerous malfunctions: congenital analbuminaemia, inflammatory disorders, hepatic diseases, malnutrition, oedema and ascites, etc. Severe hypoalbuminemia causes a serious imbalance in the osmotic pressure between the vascular and extravascular spaces, leading to oedema.

Alpha2-macroglobulin

The alpha2-macroglobulin is a very large size protease inhibitor (725 kDa), primarily synthesized by cells of the hepatic parenchyma. It is involved in the inhibition of enzymes involved in the kinin-kallikrein, complement, coagulation and even fibrinolytic systems. In addition to these inhibitor roles, the alpha2-macroglobulin is used as a carrier for many small peptides (such as cytokines or growth factors), and also with divalent cations (particularly zinc). 

The serum concentration of alpha2-macroglobulin varies with the age and gender of the individual. 

An increase in serum alpha2-macroglobulin can occur following the nephrotic syndrome. High levels are also associated with estrogen stimulation, as in pregnancy or with oral contraceptive use.

A decrease in the alpha2-macroglobulin concentration can occur due to the inflammatory phase in the case of pancreatitis, and can even indicate the presence of prostate carcinoma. The alpha2-macroglobulin level can also be lower in some individuals due to genetic variation.

CRP C-reactive protein Gold Latex

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an α1-globulin predominantly synthesized by hepatocytes. It consists of five identical non-glycosylated polypeptide subunits, linked together non-covalently, forming a protein of about 115 kDa. It is composed of few or no carbohydrates. 

C-reactive protein is an important non-specific defence against inflammation, especially against infections. 

It is one of the most sensitive inflammatory phase proteins; its level increases by a factor greater than twenty in the case of myocardial infarction, tissue trauma, infection, inflammation, surgery or neoplasia. An increase in the concentration of CRP occurs between six and twelve hours after the inflammation, with a maximum peak at forty-eight hours. It decreases in less than six hours once the source of the inflammation is eradicated. Measurement of the CRP level is thus useful for the detection of inflammation and also for monitoring its treatment.

CRP also plays an important role in the immune system. It effectively binds to bacterial membrane carbohydrates in the presence of calcium ions. This helps to facilitate the detection and elimination of bacteria so marked by phagocytes.

Epidemiological studies have shown that an increase in serum CRP levels at very low concentrations (3 mg/L) can also be associated with the risk of coronary events such as coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease or peripheral artery disease.

About us

Company details

 Your R&D Partner

DiAgam manufactures reagents for immunoturbidi­metry.

Our company specializes in high technology R&D, based on immunology techno­logies. DiAgam is the creator of liquid laboratory reagents containing gold particles.

We are currently taking part in a project to de­velop new nanotechnolo­gies based on the use of colloidal particles in the field of medical diagnosis. This activity has also suc­ceeded in completing our products range with Cystatin C, Ferritin & Rheu­matoid factor. 

Manufacturer of ready-to-use reagents

 All our products are developed and manufactured within the company.

Our reagents, controls and calibrators are liquid, stable and ready to use on all opened biochemistry ana­lyzers even with barcodes (Abbott - Alinity – Architect , Beckman Coulter – AU series, IDS-iSYS Multi-Discipline Automated System, Menarini – Zenit RA, Mindray BS series, Ortho - VITROS® 5,1 FS Chemistry, VITROS® 4600 Chemistry, VITROS® 5600 Integrated Systems, Roche - Modular®- COBAS C, Siemens - Advia® 1800 - Advia® 2400 - Atellica®, Thermo-Konelab®, etc…)

DiAgam is a member of the National Association of European Diagnostic Manufacturers Association (EDMA) and MEDTECH Europe. All reagents are  labelled and DiAgam is certified ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016.

All calibrators and controls are traceable to the International Standards (WHO, IFCC, NIBSC, etc.)

Worldwide reliability

DiAgam is present all around the world. We sell directly in Belgium, France, Spain & Portugal. We also export to French Speaking African countries, Argentina, Brazil, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, India, Mexico, Morocco, Poland, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Vietnam, etc.
