Obesity & Diabetes Research

During obesity, excess fat accumulates in adipose tissue. Obesity is a major risk factor for many
metabolic diseases, especially diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, increasing the risk of
hypertension, hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia, recognized as the metabolic syndrome.

Caltag Medsystems supply a wide range of innovative and advanced ELISA kits and reagents in the field of ‘Obesity and Metabolism’. A selection of products available are listed below, please request a brochure for the full portfolio.


Adipokines are biologically active 
substances produced in white adipose
tissue (WAT) that act in an autocrine/
paracrine or endocrine fashion and 
communicate with the brain, heart,
 vasculature, liver and muscle.
Adipokine ELISA kits and reagents include:

Obesity-Related ELISA Kits

Highly Active Obesity-related Transcription Factor Proteins
