NanoScale Corporation has garnered recognition from various organizations, including the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation, where it was acknowledged as a SBIR Bridge Award Winner. It has also received acclaim from the National Science Foundation and Popular Mechanics as a Breakthrough Award Winner. Furthermore, NanoScale Corporation was honored with the Tibbetts Award and recognized by the Kansas BioScience Organization. Additionally, it was a recipient of the Kansas Department of Commerce Merit Award and a finalist for the Kansas Governor's Exporter of the Year.

In conjunction with these accolades, the Zivak Homocysteine LC-MS/MS analysis kit has emerged as a valuable tool for quantitative analysis of total homocysteine in human plasma samples. This non-protein amino acid, derived from methionine through the removal of its terminal methyl group, plays a significant role in cardiovascular and venous diseases, according to recent studies. The Zivak kit can be utilized either manually or in combination with the Zivak-Multitasker, offering an efficient and smart procedure that ensures quantitative results in just 2.5 minutes per test, including sample preparation, injection, and analysis run time.

Furthermore, the kit facilitates the recycling of homocysteine into methionine or its conversion into cysteine with the assistance of B-vitamins. The presence of dysfunctional enzymes, often due to genetic mutations or deficiencies in essential B vitamins like folic acid, B12, and B6, can lead to hyperhomocysteinemia. Oxidized forms of homocysteine constitute a significant portion of total plasma homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine levels have been associated with dysfunctional vascular endothelium, necessitating intervention studies to assess its impact on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The automated version of the Zivak kit, with its high accuracy verified through external quality tests, offers a promising solution in this regard.
