DN-PROteom test, biomolecular detection of diabetic nephropathy
Description DiaPat® DN-PROteom
Please also read our Product data sheet and the recommendations/instructions at the end of this page.
The DiaPat® DN-PROteom Test is an extremely reliable, non-invasive method for the diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy (DN) in adults and children with type I or type II diabetes. The test recognizes renal impairment years in advance to other clinical and laboratory tests and years before clinical signs and symptoms of irreversible kidney damage will occur. DN as a severe complication of diabetes is gaining more and more momentum in its initial phase of disease progression being at this time only detectable on the molecular level. Preventive measures taken after a positive DiaPat® DN-PROteom Test in this early phase slow down this unfavorable outcome and therefore provide a foundation for an otherwise unattainable success in therapy.
Instructions for use
For the DiaPat® DN-PROteom Test, the midstream of second morning urine is collected in a urine cup. The urine is then transferred to the enclosed urine monovette (sample syringe) *. The urine monovette is placed in protective packaging* for transport. Transport to the laboratory will be carried out per overnight express (see also instructions for use). *These materials will be provided as part of the DiaPat® sample collection kit
The DiaPat® test includes the following services:
The DiaPat® DN-PROteom Test package includes the sample set for collecting the urine sample and all the necessary documents. The shipment will be operated by a courier by home pickup or via the doctor's office.
The analysis will be conducted in our central laboratory using the CE-MS technology.
Medical history questionnaire form
A detailed medical history questionnaire is part of the sampling kit. Please fill it out carefully and completely. The information is the basis for a reliable evaluation of the DiaPat® test result.
