With our dextran ELISA we offer the first comprehensive direct quantification assay for this molecule. View an infographic on our dextran ELISA. This ELISA is most useful for:
Sugar industry
Quality control of incoming cane/beets
In process testing for dextran contamination in mills and refineries

Food and Beverage Industry
Quality control of incoming sugar

For an illustration on the deteriorative impact of dextran on the sugar industry read this:
A short article about dextran and its effects on the sugar industry

Pharmaceutical Industry
Dextran has various uses in the pharmaceutical industry
Vaccine Industry – Dextran is added (chemically linked) to vaccines to induce a better immunological response.
Drug Industry - Dextran is added (chemically linked) to drugs to slow metabolism of the drug and thereby reduce the number of doses needed.

Sports Medicine – Dextran is used in athletic performance enhancement to cover up other drugs (such as erythropoietin). Dextran is now tested in the blood or urine of athletes and its presence disqualifies the athlete.
