Your central nervous system is your body’s control centre which includes the spinal cord and a large network of nerves and neurons. Together, the nervous system controls everything from your senses to the muscles throughout your body. When this is damaged, triggered by an illness or injury it can disturb many functions including memory, sensation and even a person’s personality.1 Up to 1 billion people (1 in 6 of the world’s population) suffer from neurological disorders from Alzheimer and Parkinson Disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.2

World Health Organisation (WHO) categorizes neurological disorders in two groups which is shown in the table below3. Group one is classified as neurological disorders in neuropsychiatry which are non-communicable diseases (NCD). NCD is a disease that is not transmissible directly from one person to another. Group two are disorders/injuries with neurological sequelae meaning a pathological condition resulting from a prior disease, injury, or attack.

GROUP ONE GROUP TWO
Epilepsy Cerebrovascular disease
Alzheimer and Other Dementias Neuroinfectious
Parkinson’s Disease Nutritional deficiencies and neuropathies
Multiple Sclerosis Neurological injuries
Migraine

Early Detection of Acute Kidney Injury in COVID-19 patients

Randox Biosciences          Acute Kidney Injury          COVID-19

15 July 2020

 

The Importance of Early Detection of Acute Kidney Injury in COVID-19 patients

Randox are proud to provide an early detection assay, capable of detecting Acute Kidney Injury in COVID-19 positive patients. AKI is an innovative diagnostic tool with the ability to identify four early and highly sensitive markers of kidney injury.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has highlighted that is important that COVID-19 patients are assessed for AKI on admission to hospital or transfer, monitored for AKI throughout their stay and that AKI is managed appropriately if it develops. (NICE, 2020)

The novel test, which includes biomarkers recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency detects KIM-I, NGAL, Cystatin C, and Clusterin.

Kidney failure associated with COVID-19 is emerging as a common side effect with further studies underway. Early detection to prevent further renal damage, is vital for an individual’s long-term health, wellbeing and overall survival.

The biomarkers on the Randox AKI Biochip have been identified as more sensitive than traditional testing methods, which, based on urine output and levels of serum creatinine, are grossly insensitive and not specific for the accurate diagnosis and monitoring of AKI.

The Randox AKI assay provides results in 2.5 hours. The new testing panel also facilitates increased lab efficiency and reduced sample prep from the laboratory technician. Using just one urine sample, Randox’s patented Biochip Technology tests for all four AKI biomarkers simultaneously, resulting in time and cost saving benefits, which drive towards an increase in clinical performance.

Hospitals in Wuhan and Guangzhou roll out new coronavirus test developed by Randox scientists

News       About Us        Randox Biochip

Hospitals in Wuhan and Guangzhou roll out new coronavirus test developed by Randox scientists

Randox’s pioneering new test for coronavirus, which identifies COVID-19 and differentiates it from nine other respiratory infections, is to be used in Chinese hospitals.

The comprehensive test, which is being shipped this week to hospitals in Wuhan and Guangzhou, has been developed on Randox’s unique technology platform, the Biochip.  This allows for each patient to be simultaneously tested for a range of respiratory infections inclusive of all known coronaviruses.

The Coronavirus Biochip tests each single patient sample for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, as well as nine other respiratory viruses, including SARS, MERS, and Influenza A and B. This enables clinicians to quickly and efficiently differentiate between potentially lethal and non-lethal infections, prioritise patients and administer appropriate and timely treatment.

Dr Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of Randox Laboratories, commented;

“Current technologies being used to diagnose COVID-19 are focused on simply detecting the presence or lack of this singular strain and therefore neglect to differentiate it from other respiratory infections. At Randox we have developed a multiplex Viral Respiratory Infection Array that tests for COVID-19 and nine other infections simultaneously, and are delighted that this new technology will be deployed in Wuhan and other cities across China.

“The Coronavirus Biochip will eliminate the need for multiple back-and-forth tests before the root cause of symptoms is found, thereby empowering clinicians to make faster and better-informed decisions.”

Due to be used in hospitals in Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, as well as in The First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, the new testing technology is capable of processing 324 patient samples, generating 3240 reportable results, in just 8 hours.

The panel includes two tests for COVID-19, a specific test (SARS-CoV-2) and a confirmatory test (Sarbecoviris) on the same panel, as recommended by the World Health Organisation. This avoids the need to repeat the test, and importantly, reduces the likelihood of incorrect diagnosis, ensuring appropriate containment and reducing the risk of further contamination. This faster and more comprehensive testing will ultimately support the health service in China by facilitating the efficient use of valuable healthcare resources.

Byron Wang, CEO of Beijing Promed, Randox’s partner in providing the new coronavirus test in China, commented;

“We welcome the support of the global community in assisting us combat COVID-19 at this time. Randox is a highly regarded In Vitro Diagnostic company in China and has supported our market with high quality products for many years. We look forward to supplying this test to hospitals located within the area of greatest need and believe it will make a real difference.”

Dr FitzGerald concluded;

“Randox is committed to saving and improving lives on a global scale and we know that this new COVID-19 test will make a significant contribution to the global coronavirus containment effort.”

The Coronavirus Biochip tests simultaneously for Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), Sarbecoviris (SARS, SARS like, COVID-19), Coronavirus 229E/NL63, Coronavirus OC43/HKUI, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), Adenovirus A/B/C/D/E, Enterovirus A/B/C, Influenza A, Influenza B and Rhinovirus A/B.

The Randox Coronavirus Biochip complies with guidelines from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organisation.

Acusera Infectious Disease Serology Controls

Randox Quality Control are pleased to announce the launch of our new Infectious Disease Serology Internal Quality Controls. Our portfolio includes Lyme Disease, ToRCH, EBV, HIV, HAV, HTLV, CMV, VZV and much more.

All samples are provided in a user-friendly, liquid ready-to-use format. This significantly reduces preparation time and the risk of pipetting errors.

There is approximately 1 million people in the USA living with HIV and around 15% of them are unaware they are infected (CDC, March 2019). Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that around 39,000 new HIV infections are reported per year.

The impact of not only HIV but all infectious diseases is getting much greater. Therefore, laboratories now play a much more important role in providing accurate test results. This is a key component in controlling the spread of infections.

Reporting a false positive result has its own obvious implications, however, what about the consequences of reporting a false negative. This can be just as devastating to a person in terms of the treatment they will receive and even personal lifestyle changes for the patient in question.

Randox Stroke Biochip

The Randox Stroke Biochip is a rapid and highly sensitive blood test that will complement and enhance existing CT scanning technology to facilitate accurate classification of stroke patients and improve patient care pathways.

Using Randox revolutionary patented Biochips, the Randox Stroke Biochip provides a unique solution for simultaneous detection of multiple stroke biomarkers from a single sample, facilitating fast and accurate classification of stroke patients in an emergency setting.

Benefits of the Randox Stroke Biochip

> Multiplex biochip for rapid stroke classification in under 30 minutes from a single plasma sample

> Complements and enhances existing CT scanning ensuring fast and accurate diagnosis

> Fast and accurate diagnostic classification between ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke

> Simple 2 step process from sample entry to results

> Ensures better outcomes guaranteeing timely therapeutic intervention

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)]

 Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is described as “the most complex and polymorphic of the lipoprotein particles” 1. The biggest challenge that exists surrounding Lp(a) measurement is the heterogeneity of the apo(a) isoforms. Standardisation across calibrators is vital as the repeated KIV-2 units in Lp(a) act as multiple epitopes. A lack of standardisation could result in the underestimation of Lp(a) associated CVD risk 2.

Lp(a) assays that are standardised to the WHO/IFCC reference material, transferring values from mg/dl to nmol/l are more uniformed. The Denka Seiken Lp(a) assay is the most reliable commercially available Lp(a) assay, because 2:

  1. The isoform size variations are reduced as a range of calibrators from separate pools of serum were used which covered a range of Lp(a) concentrations.
  2. The isoform size and concentrations are inversely correlated better matching calibrants with test samples.
  3. Methods based on the Denka Lp(a) assay, calibrated in nmol/l and traceable to the WHO/IFCC reference material produced an acceptable bias compared with the Northwest Lipid Metabolism and Diabetes Research Laboratory (NLMDRKL) gold standard method.

 

HEART UK advocate the widespread clinical utility of Lp(a) to refine the CVD risk assessment. In doing so, HEART UK developed ten statements on Lp(a) (Table 1) utilising the 2016 ACC/AHA Clinical Guideline Recommendation Classification System, to assess the strength of the recommendation and aid in guiding the phrasing of the recommendation 2.

Key Features of the Randox Lp(a) Assay

  • The Randox Lp(a) assay is one of the only methodologies on the market that detects the non-variable part of the Lp(a) molecule and therefore suffers minimal size related bias providing more accurate and consistent results. The Randox Lp(a) kit is standardised to the WHO/IFCC reference material (IFCC SRM 2B) and is closest in terms of agreement to the ELISA reference method.
  • Five-point calibrator with accuracy-based assigned target values, and control are available, accurately reflecting the heterogeneity of the apo(a) isoforms present in the general population and offering a complete testing package.
  • Measuring units are available in nmol/l which is more uniformed and recommended by HEART UK.
  • Immunoturbidimetric method is highly sensitive and specific for the detection of Lp(a) in serum and plasma.
  • Excellent correlation co-efficient of r=0.995 when compared against other commercially available methods.
  • Excellent within run precision of <2.54%.
  • Liquid ready-to-use format for convenience and ease-of-use.
  • Applications available detailing instrument-specific settings for the convenient use of the Randox Lp(a) assay on a wide range of clinical chemistry analysers.

H-FABP in CSA-AKI Testing

Cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI) is a well-recognised postoperative complication of cardiac surgery and is the second most common cause of AKI in the ICU, occurring in up to 30% of patients. Higher pre-operative values of H-FABP were associated with a higher risk of developing AKI. Following adjustments of certain patient characteristics, the association of pre-operative H-FABP with the development of AKI remained significant. In fact, the researchers observed that a 1 unit increase in log H-FABP was associated with a 3-fold increase in the odds of developing AKI.

Acusera Infectious Disease Serology Controls

Randox Quality Control are pleased to announce the launch of our new Infectious Disease Serology Internal Quality Controls. Our portfolio includes Lyme Disease, ToRCH, EBV, HIV, HAV, HTLV, CMV, VZV and much more.

All samples are provided in a user-friendly, liquid ready-to-use format. This significantly reduces preparation time and the risk of pipetting errors.

There is approximately 1 million people in the USA living with HIV and around 15% of them are unaware they are infected (CDC, March 2019). Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that around 39,000 new HIV infections are reported per year.

The impact of not only HIV but all infectious diseases is getting much greater. Therefore, laboratories now play a much more important role in providing accurate test results. This is a key component in controlling the spread of infections.

Reporting a false positive result has its own obvious implications, however, what about the consequences of reporting a false negative. This can be just as devastating to a person in terms of the treatment they will receive and even personal lifestyle changes for the patient in question.

Adiponectin

Adiponectin (adipocyte complement-related protein of 30kDa (Acrp30)) is an adipokine (protein hormone) produced and secreted by the adipose tissue, an endocrine organ. Adiponectin acts as a messenger in the communication of adipose tissue and metabolic organs. In doing so, Adiponectin suppresses the production of glucose in the liver through inhibiting the genes involved in glucose production and enhances fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle 2. Consequently, Adiponectin is a strong protector against several pathological events in various cells through inhibiting inflammation, suppressing cell death and enhancing cell survival. Adiponectin has been identified as having pleiotropic functions widely associated with anti-atherogenic, anti-diabetic, cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory effects.

H-FABP in CSA-AKI Testing

Cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI) is a well-recognised postoperative complication of cardiac surgery and is the second most common cause of AKI in the ICU, occurring in up to 30% of patients. Higher pre-operative values of H-FABP were associated with a higher risk of developing AKI. Following adjustments of certain patient characteristics, the association of pre-operative H-FABP with the development of AKI remained significant. In fact, the researchers observed that a 1 unit increase in log H-FABP was associated with a 3-fold increase in the odds of developing AKI.

Lower and Upper Respiratory Tract Infections

The economic burden of respiratory illness in the UK costs a staggering £11 billion every year on lung disease alone1.  Lower respiratory tract infections (LRIs) are a substantial public health problem and a leading cause of illness and death in people of all ages2. It is estimated that LRI causes nearly 4 million deaths annually3.  Upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) account for an estimated 10 million outpatient appointments a year. Most of these appointments end with physicians needless writing of antibiotic prescriptions4.

Randox Biosciences offers a Respiratory Multiplex Array which rapidly detects and identifies the cause of 22 bacterial and viral pathogens helping to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance.  Given that only bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics, rapid diagnostic tests are urgently needed to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections.  This test will aid clinicians in their selection of the most appropriate antibiotic treatment for patients.  GPs would have additional efficiency savings for the NHS, by eliminating the need for lengthy microbiology lab tests and unnecessarily writing prescriptions.

The test is performed utilising our Biochip Technology which enables the simultaneous detection of multiple results from one patient sample. Biochip Technology powers Vivalytic which is the all-one solution for molecular diagnostics.

The main benefits of the Respiratory Multiplex Array are:

  • Turnaround time of 2 hours
  • Validated for sputum, lavage and nasopharyngeal samples
  • Panel includes viral and bacterial species to consolidate testing

Randox Biosciences are committed to the ongoing development of diagnostic tests, through our research into numerous disease areas, to improve health worldwide.
