Do you need more information
Cortisol is the main glucocorticoid synthesized in the adrenal cortex. It affects the carbohydrate, protein and lipidic metabolisms, and also regulates water and electrolyte retention. Corticotropic disorders lead to adrenal hyper or hypofunction, resulting in hyper or hypocorticism.
VIDAS® Cortisol S is a quantitative assay for use on the automated VIDAS® systems. It enables cortisol to be directly measured in human serum or plasma. When using urine samples (collected over a 24-hour period),the assay is performed after extracting the cortisol with dichloromethane.
