Limit of detection: 80% B/B0: 35 pg/ml · Sensitivity: 50% B/B0: 180 pg/ml · Cortisol is a glucocorticoid produced by the adrenal cortex in response to adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). It is secreted with a circadian periodicity, and peaks just prior to waking in the morning. Cortisol is often elevated in major depressive disorder, certain forms of hypertension, stress, AIDS, and in the visceral fat of obese individuals. Cortisol can be measured in many matrices including blood, urine, and saliva. In serum, approximately 90-
NOTE: Due to an approximate 15% cross-reactivity with dexamethasone, this kit may not be suitable for use with samples that contain high concentrations of dexamethasone, such as those collected during a dexamethasone suppression test.
