A new reagent for a fully-automatic and rapid test device

ARKRAY, Inc. is due to release the SPOTCHEM i-Pack Oxystress Test, a new reagent for the immunological reaction analyzer , the SPOTCHEM IM SI-3511 on Tuesday 10 June.

ARKRAY, Inc. (herein ARKRAY) is due to release the SPOTCHEM i-Pack Oxystress Test: a kit for the simple measurement of oxidative stress within the body; and a reagent for research use.

Oxidative stress occurs when oxidative properties from active enzymes within the body and anti-oxidative system balance are abnormal. The resulting oxidative state causes damage to the body. In recent years, the effect on increased oxidative stress on aging and lifesyle-related diseases and other ailments has been theorized. This marker is expected to be very useful in preventative medicine and other medical research.

SPOTCHEM i-Pack Oxystress Test is used with the immunological reaction analyzer , the SPOTCHEM IM SI-3511 (sold by ARKRAY) and blood (serum or plasma) as a sample type. It automatically measures OS (Oxidative Stress) and AP (Antioxidant Power) with no hassle, offering an analysis of the degree of oxidative stress within the body.

ARKRAY continues to use its core technologies to increase its product lineup and take on new challenges in the healthcare and anti-aging fields.

The SPOTCHEM i-Pack Oxystress Test will be displayed at the 14th Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Society of Anti-Aging Medicine held at the Osaka International Convention Center (Friday 6-Sunday 8 June 2014)
