Lab managers struggle with raising costs, trying to strike a balance between test volumes and efficient utilization of reagents for expensive tests like specific proteins, while maintaining, or even increasing quality and test performance.
Medicon is introducing Megakits, a new concept in reagent kit design, whereby reagents with proven reliability, packed in instrument-specific vials with barcode identification, are sold in very large kit formats. Megakits allow thousands of tests to be run with a single purchase of reagent at exceptionally low prices.
We have chosen expensive tests to start with, like Ferritin, D-Dimer, ASO, CRP and sTfR but we welcome requests for any of our vast menu of specific protein tests, to be shipped in Megakit format. These tests are currently available for direct placement in Beckman Coulter AU-series and Siemens ADVIA analyzers. Hitachi format will be available upon request.
Shipments of Megakits will be free-of charge all over the world. We will also include an adequate number of calibrators and controls, also free of charge, with every shipment.
Performance is ensured by our 30+ years of reagent manufacturing experience, our high-tech production processes, rigorous quality control and ISO13485 certification. These reagents have been in use for many years and are all CE marked while FDA 510(k) is pending.
Considerable savings in handling costs, free delivery, free calibrators and controls and fully guaranteed excellent quality ensure that large analyzer users will have significant benefits by using Megakits.

- The lowest detectable limit (LDL) is defined as the lowest concentration of analyte that is distinguishable from zero. A sample free of analyte is assayed 20 times and the LDL is calculated as the absolute mean value plus three standard deviations.
- A SIEMENS ADVIA 1800 analyzer was used for the determination of the performance values listed above. Performance on ADVIA 2400 and 1200 was also determined. Values available upon request.
- Total cv% values have also been determined according to CLSI EP-5T protocol. Values available upon request.
