Vancomycin is one of prescribed classes of glycopeptide antibiotics used to treat various bacterial infections including complicated skin infections, bloodstream infections, endocarditis, bone and joint infections, and meningitis. Vancomycin inhibits cell wall synthesis mainly in Gram-positive bacteria by preventing polymerisation of N-acetylmuramic acid (NAM) and N-acetylglucosamine (NAG). Like most other antibiotics, vancomycin has some side-effects such as dizziness, itching, rash, nausea, low blood pressure, muscle pain and fever and it is important to monitor the level of vancomycin in patients. The traditional techniques/instruments (HPLC or GC-MS) for detecting vancomycin are complex, expensive, and time-consuming. Immunoassay techniques, on the other hand, are commonly preferred as a simple, reliable and rapid method. BioVision’s Vancomycin ELISA Kit is a competitive-based ELISA that can be used to detect vancomycin in urine and serum samples. This detection kit offers ready-to-use reagents, and can quantify vancomycin (12.8 – 1000 ng/ml) within 120 minutes.
