Acute vitamin C deficiency leads to scurvy. Since vitamin C is partially converted in food into the biologically-active L-dehydroascorbic acid, both substances must be determined in a test system. Many analytical techniques including sensors and biosensors have been suggested for a detection of ascorbic acid in very varied types of samples.

Creative Diagnostics provide a series of Vitamin C antibodies and conjugates for new detection method development.
