BioPhysics Assay Laboratory (BioPAL, Inc.) is a privately held, for-profit company based in Worcester Massachusetts. The company develops and sells novel tools for the life science and biomedical communities. BioPAL was the first company to commercialize non-radioactive products that use neutron activation technology as the read-out system. The company also develops and sells nanoparticles for applications in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic separation applications and tools for time resolved fluorescent technology.
BioPAL was the first to introduce functional immunoassay technology (FIT) to the research community. The company offers a line of renal diagnostics based on FIT to measure glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal blood flow (RBF). Most notably is BioPAL's ELISA kit for the measurement of inulin.
BioPAL offers immunoassay kits to measure glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and to measure effective renal blood flow (RBF). FIT-GFR kits are available to measure the clearance of inulin, iohexol, Gd-DTPA or Gd-DOTA. FIT-RBF kit is available to measure the clearance of iodohippurate. BioPAL also offers laboratory services for those customers who do not have the capability to perform the immunoassay in-house.
BioPAL is a leading provider of quality MRI contrast reagents to the life-science community. We offer a wide range of iron-base (T2 imaging agent, USPIOs) and gadolinium-based (T1 imaging agent) contrast reagents.
BioPAL offers stable-isotope labeled microspheres, which is a cost-effective alternative to the use of radioactive and optical microspheres for the measurement of regional organ blood flow and particle deposition studies. Twelve different labels of microspheres are available.
Viahance dead-cell removal kit is the ONLY product on the market that can simultaneously remove dead cells, stripped nuclei and free oligonucleotides from cell culture. This product is also the ONLY product on the market that is provided autoclaved and does not contain foreign proteins, such as Annexin-V.
FIT-GFR Inulin kits a designed to measure the clearance of inulin to evaluate kidney function.
The best and most widely published MRI cell labeling product on the market.
