  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Alpha 1 acid Glycoprotein (AGP) Human in vitro competitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitive measurement of Alpha 1 acid Glycoprotein in plasma and serum.

    An Alpha 1 acid Glycoprotein specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently biotinylated Alpha 1 acid Glycoprotein 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 inversely proportional to the amount of Alpha 1 acid Glycoprotein captured in plate.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Unfortunately, we do not have any Human serum available in our catalog that could be used as control and the kit ab108854 (http://www.abcam.com/ab108854) comes with Human AGP Standard but not with control serum.

We will update the graph, as it indeed confusing. When +2, 1, 0, -1 and -2is written, it means actually 102, 101, 100, 10-1, 10-2 so 100, 10, 1, 0.1 and 0.01.

Please excuse for this error. As said, I alread...
