  • Product overview

    Abcam’s alpha 2 Macroglobulin Rat ELISA Kit is highly sensitive two-site enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) for the quantitative measurement of alpha 2 Macroglobulin in rat biological samples. This kit is specific to the alpha 2 Macroglobulin and will not cross react with the closely related alpha 1 Macroglobulin. 

    In this assay the alpha 2 Macroglobulin present in samples reacts with the anti-alpha 2 Macroglobulin antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtitre wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti-alpha 2 Macroglobulin antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound alpha 2 Macroglobulin. Following another washing step, the enzyme bound to the immunosorbent is assayed by the addition of a chromo­genic substrate, 3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of alpha 2 Macroglobulin in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of alpha 2 Macroglobulin in the test sample. The quantity of alpha 2 Macroglobulin in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution
