C-Peptide Elisa kit for IVD use

This human C-peptide ELISA kit is intended for use in the quantitative determination of human connecting peptide in serum and/or plasma.

 C-peptide is a small 31-amino acid peptide usually produced in the beta cell of pancreas as a byproduct of the cleavage of proinsulin in the synthesis of insulin. Proinsulin consists of A and B chain and connecting peptide in the middle, called C-peptide. It is generally found in equimolar amounts equal to insulin in circulation. Since the half-life of C-peptide is 3-4 times that of insulin, it serves as a useful measure of insulin production in the beta cells of the pancreas.   Testing for C-peptide levels can help find the cause of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) aid in distinguishing type 1 from type 2 diabetes. A person with diabetes may have a normal level of Cpeptide which indicates the body is making plenty of insulin but the body is just not responding properly to it. This is the hallmark of type 2 diabetes (adult insulin-resistant diabetes). For patient of type 1diabetes treated with insulin, measuring C-peptide level is useful in evaluating beta cell function related to synthesis and release endogenous insulin into the circulation.  Some studies have suggested that C-peptide may have chemotactic effects on the inflammatory cells and might have a role in increased risk of atherosclerosis in persons with type-2 diabetes.
