  • Product overview

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

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human HGF coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and HGF present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human HGF 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 HGF bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Thank you for your inquiry. I have answered your questions below:

Does this kit detect total HGF - the single chain precursor of HGF (scHGF) and the activated heterodimer as well?

The exact form of HGF recognized has not been tested, ...

Thank you for your reply.

It can't be that the buffer has the same consistency as glycerol!As we do not have separatecomponents, I would like to offer your customer a FOCR instead.

Please let me know if this is acceptable.

Thank you for sending in the data. The standard curve does still contain strong linearity when including the higher concentrated standards, 222.2 pg/ml and 666.7 pg/ml. The highest standard (2000 pg/ml) did give a reading that affects the linearity dow...

It is difficult to recommend a specific speed for a "gentle shaking". The plate should just bemoving to get a homogenous solution and not too fast to avoid a spillage.I hope this helps.

Thank you for contacting us.

Both mouse and human HGF ELISA kits will detect total HGF.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
