  • Product overview

    Human MMP1 ELISA kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human MMP1 pro and active forms in serum, plasma (using heparin as an anticoagulant, EDTA and Citrate are not recommended), and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human MMP1 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and MMP1 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human MMP1 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 MMP1 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Nous ne recommandons pas de modifier les concentrations des courbes standards mais plutôt de diluer vos échantillons.

Toutefois, si vous voulez vraiment changer les courbes standards ceci est possible. Cependant en augmentant les concentrations de la courbe standard, vous augmentez considérablement le risque de saturer l'anticorps qui peut conduire à un effet de plafonnement (une courbe non linéaire). N’oublions pas que l’anticorps de capture a aussi une limite du taux de protéine qu’il peut capturer.

Veuillez noter que beaucoup de tests ont été réalisé pour déterminer les concentrations standards optimales pour les anticorps et donc si vous décidez de modifier les gammes de standards nous ne pourrons plus garantir que ces produits fonctionneront.

De plus, nous ne savons pas à partir de quelle concentration les standards sont solubles.

Pour ab100603, nous recommandons de reconstituer le standard dans 400 ul de diluant pour faire 100 ng/ml. Ceci est après dilué ˜5.555 fois pour faire une concentration de 18,000 pg/ml. Je vous conseille donc de diluer le standard de 100 ng/ml moins que 5.55 fois pour obtenir une gamme plus concentré.

Pour ab46032, nous ne recommandons pas de reconstituer le standard dans un plus petit volume, pour obtenir 4.000 pg/mL.

Thank you and your customerfor taking the time to complete our questionnaire and contact us. I am sorry to hear your customerhas had difficulty obtaining satisfactory results from this antibody.

The details your customerhas kindly provided will provide us with vital information for our monitoring of product quality.

I appreciate the time your customerhas spent in the laboratory and understandtheir concerns. It is regrettable the results have not been successful. I can suggest your customerhas regrettably received bad kits.

I apologise for the inconvenience and am pleased to offer your customera free of charge replacement or credit note in compensation.

In addition, I can suggest your customer may like to consider the following suggestions for future experiments:

Please let us know if there precipitation before using the kit. If the customer find precipitation, we are suggesting to spin the buffer down and only use the supernatant. Or alternatively filter the buffer.

Thank you and your customerfor your cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you with details of how your customerwould like to proceed.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Unfortunately, to our knowledge ab100603, ab100607, and ab100605 have not been tested with monkey samples so there is no cross reactivity data available. However, I believe that MMPs are very well conserved among species so I would expect the degree of homology between human and monkey to be quite high. Therefore, I think it would be worth a shot as the only way to know at this point would be to test.

As these kits have not been tested in monkey, I can offer you our 100% Abreview Testing Discount. Please see the link below for more information on the program (your free product would be a kit):


If it helps, the capture and detection antibodies in all three of these kits are a monoclonal and polyclonal respectively. Also, all of the kits detect the pro and mature form of the protein.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to take advantage of the testing discount program.
