AbsoluteIDQ® Stero17 Kit

Steroid hormones from mouse to man

Steroid hormones are best known to regulate cell growth and proliferation. They are involved in regulating glucose and mineral levels. Steroid hormones are primarily produced in the adrenal glands and gonads from cholesterol.
The AbsoluteIDQ® Stero17 kit provides a ready-to-use, standardized solution for the quantitation of 17 steroid hormones from all five major classes.
