SurModics IVD Breakthrough Stabilizer Addresses Industry Challenge

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SurModics IVD, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of SurModics, Inc. (NAS: SRDX) and a market leader for in vitro diagnostic assay components, is launching its new StabilZyme® Protein-Free Stabilizer today at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) meeting in Houston.

"This newest addition to SurModics' stabilization line is significant for assay developers because it helps even their most sensitive assays function optimally," says Gary Maharaj, CEO and president. "Assay developers have been asking for a top performing, protein-free stabilizer that addresses their growing needs in the areas of sensitivity, specificity and reliability."

Assays have become increasingly sensitive in recent years. However, the protein stabilizers most commonly used to stabilize biomolecule activity may contribute to interference and cross-reactivity. SurModics' new StabilZyme Protein-Free Stabilizer delivers excellent retained activity—a key performance factor—while eliminating the risk of interference and cross-reactivity.

SurModics IVD offers a full range of innovative solutions, including custom formulations, for the in vitro diagnostics industry.
