Abcam’s beta 2 Microglobulin in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of beta 2 Microglobulin levels in plasma, serum, milk, saliva, urine, CSF and cell culture supernatants.
A beta 2 Microglobulin specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a beta 2 Microglobulin 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 beta 2 Microglobulin captured in plate.
