ALPCO and InSphero Partner to Offer a Complete Solution to Assess Beta-cell Function in Islet Microtissue Culture Models


Salem, NH, July 24, 2018 --( ALPCO, a leading producer of research and clinical immunoassays, recently announced its partnership with InSphero, AG to provide customers with a complete solution to assess beta-cell function in islet microtissue culture models. InSphero's 3D InSight™ Diabetes Discovery Platform offers users a comprehensive beta-cell function application suite with all required materials to quantify insulin secretion from 3D InSight™ Islet Microtissues, including ALPCO's validated STELLUX® Chemiluminescent Insulin ELISA.

"InSphero's 3D InSight™ platform requires the use of highly sensitive assays that have a broad range and utilize a small sample size to accurately quantify the secretion of insulin and other beta-cell biomarkers from their precious islets," explains ALPCO's president, Sean Conley. "Through extensive testing, our STELLUX® Chemiluminescent Insulin ELISA proved to meet or exceed the criteria needed for assaying islet microtissue cultures, demonstrating that it is a perfect fit for customers using 3D InSight™."

ALPCO and InSphero are also currently working to test and validate more STELLUX® Chemiluminescent ELISAs to potentially include in the 3D InSight™ Diabetes Discovery Platform and further promote the advancement of early stage metabolic disease research.
