Cortisol Sensitive

Cortisol is the main glucocorticoid hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex. There are diurnal variations of serum cortisol levels reaching the highest levels in the morning. Cortisol affects carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism as well as electrolyte balance. Cortisol measurement is essential in investigations of hypo- and hypercortisolism.

This assay enables the determination of cortisol not only in serum, plasma and urine, but also in saliva.
