Hepcidin Analysis

 The discovery of hepcidin almost a decade ago represented a great leap forward in the understanding of human iron biology. There has since been a plethora of publications outlining its mode of action in normal human physiology and its role in human disease; from haematological disorders to epithelial cancers.

Here at the University of Birmingham we consider ourselves leaders in the field of hepcidin research and we have successfully developed a hepcidin-25 specific assay for the accurate quantitation of hepcidin in biological fluids.

Our aim is to provide robust and reliable hepcidin measurements to aid in advancing the understanding of iron biology in human health.
