The Ansh Labs’ Oxyntomodulin (OXM) ELISA is a quantitative two-step sandwich immunoassay.
OXM causes weight loss via suppression of food intake and increase in energy expenditure. OXM administration was also reported to increase heart-rate in mice. Besides regulating glucose homeostasis in monogastric animals, OXM also increases the concentration of insulin and glucose in plasma of Holstein cattle under normal physiological conditions. It has been shown that Type 2 diabetes patients have lower levels of OXM and levels increase more than 10-fold after gastric bypass surgery.
Ansh Labs, located just south of Houston Texas, is an FDA registered manufacturer of diagnostic test kits, antibodies, antigens, and proteins. Our scientists are experts in immunoassay development and have developed some of the most challenging hormone assays helping to advance research and clinical diagnostics in reproductive function, growth disorders, metabolism, and more.
