Agdia, Inc. (Elkhart, IN) has been the leading provider of diagnostic solutions for the agricultural industry since 1981. Agdia is happy to announce the commercial release of a critical visualization reagent commonly used by diagnostic providers in all industries.

Agdia’s TMB Peroxidase Substrate represents a new offering for all diagnostic providers in need of a robust and high-sensitivity source of this critical reagent featuring industry-leading lot-to-lot performance and stability.

TMB (3,3′,5,5′-Tetramethylbenzidine) substrate is used primarily as a colorimetric detection agent for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs).

When used in sandwich ELISA format, for example, TMB substrate reacts with horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated antibodies in the presence of the target antigen (i.e., a pathogen, expressed protein, etc.). This reaction results in a blue color indicating a positive result that can be visualized with the naked eye, or when used with a microplate reader, a quantitative value associated with the level of the target antigen present in a sample.

Agdia’s new TMB Peroxidase Substrate is available in sizes of 100 mL, 1000 mL or 5000 mL. Please see the product page for more details and pricing information.

Agdia, Inc. has been serving plant breeders, propagators, growers, universities, regulatory organizations and private testing laboratories since 1981. The company offers a comprehensive portfolio of validated, easy-to-use diagnostics for identifying plant pathogens, plant hormones, and transgenic traits and comprehensive customer support on all products.
