IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Tumor Marker, Carbohydrate Antigen CA
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of a sample of body fluids (e.g., blood) to determine carbohydrate-related, high-molecular-weight mucin antigens present on the surface or secreted by neoplastic tumor cells (i.e., tumor markers); these reagents include antibodies (typically monoclonal antibodies) with the capability of binding to these tumor markers. Carbohydrate antigen tumor markers are usually more tumor-specific (e.g., breast cancer) than hormones and enzymes.
