Diagnostic Salivary Progesterone ELISA Kit (FDA, CE Mark)
Salimetrics Assay #1-2502 (in vitro diagnostic use)
The Salimetrics Salivary Progesterone (P4) Enzyme Immunoassay Kit was specifically designed to standardize the detection of progesterone in saliva samples for research and biomedical laboratories. Using a small sample volume, this assay kit has an extended range that spans the expected progesterone levels found in human saliva. The average inter- and intra-assay precision coefficients of variation are low with no deleterious matrix effects often found in saliva which are characterized through dilution- and spike-recovery validation procedures. This progesterone assay kit has also been formatted to minimize cross reactivity for related steroids.
