The steroid 17 Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OH P) is produced by both the adrenal cortex and gonads. It is synthesised from progesterone and serves primarily as a precursor compound that is converted into cortisol in the adrenal gland, or into androgenic and estrogenic steroid hormones in the gonads. 17-OH P is routinely used for the diagnostic assessment of 21-hydroxylase deficiency, which is linked to congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
• Exceptional sensitivity and highly reproducible results
• Suitable for measurement of a variety of sample types
• Excellent correlation with existing 17-OH Progesterone ELISA assays
• Fully automated assay
