  • Product overview

    Human Leptin ELISA kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Human Leptin in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Leptin coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Leptin present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Leptin antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Leptin bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

We used rhesus macaque serum/plasma with the human leptin kit and used human serum as a positive control. The human serum produced a strong signal but virtually no signal was produced by the rhesus macaque serum/plasma. Therefore, it is likely that this kit does not cross react with non-human primate serum/plasma.

Human Leptin ELISA test for rhesus macaques plasma

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
This ELISA kit is unsuitable for rhesus macaques. Undiluted plasma samples from 17 rhesus macaques yielded mostly negative or very weakly reactive positive results.
