BMF 85 - Biogenic Amines

Phaeochromocytoma (PCC) is a rare tumour in the adrenal glands, affecting less than 1 person per 2,000.

The tumour causes excess secretion of catecholamine’s resulting in hypertension, but can also lead to diabetes-like symptoms.

Laboratory diagnosis includes measurement of urine catecholamine’s or urine and plasma metanephrines.

Chiron now offer native and labelled standards as well as standard mixes for these diagnostic markers.
