Do you need more information

VIDAS® 25 OH Vitamin D Total is an automated quantitative test for the determination of 25-hydroxyvitamin D Total in human serum or plasma using the ELFA (Enzyme Linked Fluorescent Assay) technique. It reflects vitamin D produced cutaneously and that obtained from food and supplements for a reliable indication of vitamin D status.
 

An assay of general health status

Vitamin D helps the body absorb and use calcium and phosphorus. As a result, vitamin D deficiency causes bone-weakening diseases such as rickets in children and osteoporosis in adults. Recent studies have also established a link between low circulating vitamin D levels and an increased risk of cancer, diabetes and several cardiovascular or autoimmune diseases.(1)

Beyond bone health, sufficient exposure to vitamin D - through sun exposure, food and dietary supplements - is essential to strengthen the immune system and maintain general health for optimum wellness(2).

 


 

The VIDAS® 25 OH Vitamin D Total reference range is compliant with international clinical recommendations(3). It enables clinicians to confidently establish a patient’s vitamin D status and determine the appropriate supplementation when needed. Following the patient’s status will allow to check the dosage and adjust it.
 

Performance

VIDAS® 25 OH Vitamin D Total is very well correlated to the Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry/Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) reference method.*

It offers the same high degree of precision and is easy to perform in any lab for rapid results.
