Reagents, Immunoassay, Autoimmune, Anti-Striated Muscle Antibody
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum) to determine antibodies against the striated muscles (SMAs). High levels of SMA are frequently found in patients with local or generalized fatigue and exhaustion of the muscular system (i.e., myasthenia gravis); these antibodies are also found in patients with rheumatic fever and other cardiac diseases (e.g., myocardial infarction).

The Binding Site Inc
At Binding Site we constantly strive to improve the tools available to laboratory professionals around the world for diagnosing and monitoring disease. Our origins date back to a group of researchers within the Medical School of Birmingham University who first started looking at innovative ways of producing antibodies in the early 1970's. With a desire to continue this early work but lacking the required government funding they founded a private company to take the research forward and utilise any potential commercial benefits. That company has evolved into The Binding Site and for over 25 years we have specialised in producing highly sensitive and highly specific antibodies used for the detection of certain cancers and other serious disorders.
