EKF Diagnostics is now the new home of Argutus Medical biomarkers. Argutus Medical formally became EKF Diagnostics in January 2013. EKF Diagnostics is a global manufacturer and distributor of biomarker test kits used at the point of care and in the laboratory.
EKF Diagnostics is a world leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of diagnostic biomarker-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) Kits and Rapid Tests which can sensitively detect organ damage. Our biomarker diagnostic kits are used by researchers and clinicians around the world. We focus primarily on the development of test kits to detect the early stages of acute kidney injury (AKI), previously known as Acute Renal Failure (ARF). There are a range of causes for acute kidney damage including Diabetes, Nephrotoxicity, Kidney Transplantation and Heart Surgery.
Using our biomarker-based test kits along with traditional Serum Creatinine measurement (a measurement of kidney function) has a number of advantages:
- Ability to locate the exact site of the kidney injury
- Improve drug development & patient care
- Ability to detect damage earlier than with Serum Creatinine alone.
In addition to these ELISA & Rapid Tests for Acute Kidney Injury we also have a unique assay for genotoxicity, the OxyDNA Test.

Our Genotoxicity Assay
OxyDNA is our unique, patented genotoxicity test. OxyDNA reliably detects 8-oxoguanine (8OG), the major breakdown product resulting from oxidative DNA damage.
OxyDNA Test has uses in a variety of research areas including:
- Skincare Development
- Fertility Research
- Cancer Research
- Toxicology including Environmental Toxicology
