  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Follistatin Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human Follistatin in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants. (Genecards: FST)

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Follistatin coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Follistatin present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Follistatin antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Follistatin bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Product Wall

We trialed the Follistatin Human ELISA kit for Mouse Serum Samples to determine its effectiveness in detecting mouse follistatin. The kit was performed according to Abcam's protocol and guidelines. We found that the Follistatin Human ELISA kit is not effective in detecting mouse follistatin. While the human standards demonstrated a good standard curve, the mouse standards, which were created using recombinant mouse follistatin (R&D Systems), did not show much difference between the maximum and minimum concentrations. Additionally, there was a precipitate that formed in the mouse standards that was not identifiable and interfered with the absorbance reading.
