  • Product overview

    Amphiregulin in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of human Amphiregulin protein in serum, plasma (citrate and EDTA), and cell culture supernatants.

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab222504 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.


  • The Amphiregulin standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of Amphiregulin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Amphiregulin standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 50%, plasma (EDTA) 50%, plasma (citrate) 50%, RPMI media 50%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2).

  • Human MCF7s were stimulated with 2% PHA for 3 days before the supernatant was collected and assayed. The concentrations of Amphiregulin were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the Amphiregulin standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Amphiregulin concentration was determined to be 23.7 ng/mL in stimulated and 16 ng/mL in unstimulated MCF7 cell culture supernatant.
