  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Urokinase type Plasminogen Activator Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Urokinase type Plasminogen Activator (uPA) in plasma, serum, urine, milk, cell culture supernatants and tissue extracts.


    A Urokinase type Plasminogen Activator specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a Urokinase type Plasminogen Activator specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP 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 Urokinase type Plasminogen Activator captured in plate.

Customer reviews and Q&As



Both ab108914 and ab108917 contain 12, 8 well strips.


You are correct that you should be able to detect tPA and uPA from cell culture supernatants or cell homogenates with both these kits.

Thank you for your email.

We generally recommend our customer using 400-500ul of lysis buffer per 5-10 mg of tissues however you may have to adjust it based upon your results.

500ul lysis buffer for 1 million cells would be ideal.
