FastPack® IP SHBG is a chemiluminescent immunoassay intended for the quantitative determination of Sex Hormone Binding Globulin in human serum and plasma on the FastPack® System. The FastPack® IP SHBG assay is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of androgen disorders.
Measurement of SHBG in addition to total testosterone enables the calculation of free and bio-available testosterone. Physicians can better interpret their patients’ androgen status with a comprehensive understanding of the differences between total, free, and bio-available testosterone. This is particularly important when total testosterone levels are not consistent with clinical symptoms.
The FastPack® IP system enables physicians to diagnose androgen disorders, monitor testosterone therapy, and make adjustments in a single patient visit.
