  • Product overview

    Abcam’s MMP8 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human MMP8 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants. (Collect plasma using heparin as an anticoagulant. EDTA and Citrate are not recommended).

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human MMP8 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and MMP8 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human MMP8 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 MMP8 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Thank you for your patience.

The lab let me know the following:

ab100609 : Cross reactivity with mouse is unknown. If it helps, the capture antibody is monoclonal and the detection antibody is polyclonal.

ab100779 : Untested with mouse, but expected strong cross reactivity based on sequence similarity. Homology of MMP-8 between rat and mouse is ˜91%

If you like to try the rat ELISA kit on mouse samples, you can use our testing discount program I had sent you information about. If you like to participate, please let me know and I'd be happy to send youa discount code.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have contacted the lab regarding the cross-reactivity of the 2 kits and will let you know what I find out.

As for the testing discount program, we have the following general information:

For UNTESTED species and/or applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works:

The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein/kit on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody/protein/kit at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount for ONE antibody/protein at the full price (100%) of the antibody/protein you have tested, or a full price discount for the amount paid for the kit. The terms and conditions applicable to this offer can be found here: https://www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.
This programapplies to ELISA kits and other kits we offer.
