  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Leptin Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Leptin concentrations in Human cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma.

    A Leptin specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a Leptin specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Conjugate is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of Leptin captured in plate.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human Leptin ELISA Kit (ab179884) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • Platform


  • Function
    May function as part of a signaling pathway that acts to regulate the size of the body fat depot. An increase in the level of LEP may act directly or indirectly on the CNS to inhibit food intake and/or regulate energy expenditure as part of a homeostatic mechanism to maintain constancy of the adipose mass.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in LEP may be a cause of obesity (OBESITY) [MIM:601665]. It is a condition characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat.

These products are very similar, they use similar techniques to measure human Leptin in samples. In reviewing the information about each kit I have noted that ab100581 Sensitivity< 2 pg/ml, Range of 1.64 pg/ml - 400 pg/ml and Recovery of 94%. While ...

Thank you very much for your inquiry and your interest in our kits.

Unfortunately,the cross-reactivity of ab108879and ab108881 with pig samples is low, around 5%.

For the other three kits, ab100581, ab100718 and ab100773,the laborat...
