Abcam’s Osteoprotegerin Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human Osteoprotegerin in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.
This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Osteoprotegerin coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Osteoprotegerin present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Osteoprotegerin 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 Osteoprotegerin bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.
Get results in 90 minutes with Human Osteoprotegerin ELISA Kit (ab189580) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.
Optimization may be required with urine samples.
We recommend preparing serum-free or low-serum medium samples, as serum tends to contain cytokines which may produce significant background signals. If it is necessary to test serum-containing medium, we recommend also running an uncultured media blank to assess baseline signals. This baseline can then be subtracted from the cultured media sample data.
