Bio-Rad's Urinary Catecholamines by HPLC (Reversed Phase) Kit is designed for the quantitative determination of free catecholamines (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine) in urine for the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma.
In addition, this application is easily compatible with Bio-Rad's urinary Metanephrines by HPLC assay due to the same analytical column and mobile phase used.
Bio-Rad has developed automated protocols for many of our HPLC kits with Gilson ASPEC™ XL or GX-271. Each protocol is validated for complete confidence in the results. These methods help reduce laboratory costs by dramatically decreasing labor hours. Contact your local Bio-Rad representative for more information about Gilson ASPEC methods.
