Abcam’s mouse Lipocalin-2 (NGAL) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of mouse Lipocalin-2 in cell culture supernatants, serum, plasma (heparin) and urine.
A Lipocalin-2 specific rat monoclonal antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and incubated. A biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for Lipocalin-2 is then added followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. TMB is then used to visualize the 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 mouse Lipocalin-2 amount of sample captured in plate.
For higher sensitivity and reproducibility in only 90 minutes, we recommend Mouse Lipocalin-2 ELISA Kit (NGAL) (ab199083) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.
