The launch and immediate availability of a new line of advanced immunoassay stabilizers were announced prior to the commencement of the 2016 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo (Philadelphia, PA, USA).

The Surmodics (Eden Prairie, MN, USA) StabilBlock Immunoassay Stabilizer, which will be on display in Booth 4047 of the expo, is advertised as the best available reagent for reducing non-specific binding to boost immunoassay signal-to-noise ratios.

Surmodics offers a family of immunoassay stabilizers, which preserve the conformation and activity of dried proteins on a wide range of surfaces, keeping antibodies and antigens at peak performance for long durations. At the same time, the blocking mechanisms in these reagents reduce non-specific binding of interfering proteins to maximize assay sensitivity. With StabilCoat, StabilGuard, and the new StabilBlock immunoassay stabilizers, the company now offers three options to assay developers with a combination of blocking efficacy and long-term dried stability that is unmatched in the industry.

“As part of our commitment to being the premier provider of IVD assay components to improve performance and manufacturability of immunoassays, we continue to advance our offerings to meet the needs of our customers,” said Joe Stich, vice- president and general manager of Surmodics IVD. “We recognize that each assay has its own blocking requirements and our expanded portfolio of Immunoassay Stabilizers will enable assay developers to achieve the best results for each application.”
