We are interested in the anti-creatinine antibody for use in a sandwich assay. I see on the website that Abcam has approved the antibody for competitive ELISA only. Does this mean that other assays were not performed, or that other assays were performed and not successful? I am aware that creatinine is a very small molecule, and we typically work with proteins in sandwich assays. It seems that the nature of the small moleculemay not allow for a sandwich to be formed.
I am writing to ask, again, what it means that certain assays are not approved on the data sheet.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
If we do mention certain applications on the datasheet, that doesn’t mean that it will not work for that application, just that we have not tested in that application (same for species). If we have tested in in an application and we know it will not work, then we will clearly state that on the datasheet.
If you do want to test the antibodies in an untested application, then you can take advantage of our 100% Abreview Testing Discount program:
If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
