Desmopressin (DDAVP/Stimate/Minirin) is a medication used to treat diabetes insipidus, bedwetting, hemophilia A, von Willebrand disease, and high blood urea levels. Desmopressin (dDAVP), a synthetic analogue of 8-arginine vasopressin (ADH), is an antidiuretic peptide drug modified by deamination of 1- cysteine and substitution of 8-L-arginine by 8-D-arginine. ADH is an endogenous pituitary hormone that has a crucial role in the control of the water content in the body. Upon release from the stimulation of increased plasma osmolarity or decreased circulating blood volume, ADH mainly acts on the cells of the distal part of the nephron and the collecting tubules in the kidney. The hormone interacts with V1, V2 or V3 receptors with differing signal cascade systems.
The Desmopressin ELISA is used for estimation of Desmopressin in serum, plasma, or tissue extracts in pharmacokinetics, peptide delivery study and other purposes.
The Desmopressin ELISA is a competitive immunoassay for the determination of Desmopressin. The antiserum is captured by antibodies coated on a 96-well plate. A constant concentration of Biotin Concentrate and varying concentrations of unlabeled standard or sample compete for binding specifically to the antiserum. Captured Bt-tracer is subsequently bound by SA-HRP (streptavidin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase), which produces a soluble colored product after a substrate is added. The enzyme reaction is stopped by dispensing an acidic solution (H2SO4) into the wells after 10 min at room temperature turning the solution from blue to yellow. The optical density (OD) of the solution at 450 nm is inversely proportional to the amount of specific Desmopressin bound.
Dr Jayaraman D. Lead Scientist, leading CRO company
I have been working with a team from KRISHGEN on an assay development and customization before giving us. The project was complicated and needed technical expertise in immunology. I was very pleased with their technical competence and also mastering immunology and delivering a tough project to us on time. Their rigor, punctuality and expertise have been a recipe for the high standards, I would expect for such project from them. Kudos, Krishgen Team!!!
Mr Ramesh Sravanan, VP-Supply Chain
The expertise and command on the logistics chain including the regulatory
guidelines from Krishgen is something we admire. As they often indicate, let us
do the supplies, and let your team focus on science … is really something the
company works on. Delivering consistently, with less than 1% error or delay
consistently is the key to their success.
Dr Keith Stevens, visiting Scientist, Norfolk University, UK
To have a company understand science and work with them, is a pleasure. Krishgen
not only sells but understands what it sells in terms of the complex cutting
Mellisa Karlowski, Lead Researcher, east coast US CRO
The company is good on understanding its customers, is transparent and
speaks science. This makes it easier for us to work with them.
