  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Prolactin in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of Prolactin in Human serum.

    A 96-well plate has been precoated with anti-Prolactin IgG antibodies. Samples and standards and are added to the wells, where Prolactin in the sample and standards binds to the precoated antibody. Added Anti-Prolactin-HRP conjugate binds to the antibody-Prolactin complex. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material and TMB substrate is then added which is catalyzed by HRP to produce blue coloration. The reaction is terminated by addition of Stop Solution which stops the color development and produces a color change from blue to yellow. The intensity of signal is directly proportional to the amount of Prolactin in the sample and the intensity is measured at 450 nm.

  • Relevance

    Various hormones are secreted from the anterior pituitary during development and growth. Prolactin is a growth factor secreted by the anterior pituitary that is necessary for the proliferation and differentiation of the mammary glands. Prolactin acts primarily on the mammary gland by promoting lactation.

Thank you for contacting us. The Prolactin Human ELISA Kit (ab108655) is intended for the quantitative determination of prolactin concentration in human serum. We have not tested it with cell culture media and cannot say for certain if it will work. What type of cells are you culturing (type and species) and what other reagents would be present in the media (e.g. fetal calf serum)? Please let me know. I look forward to hear back from you.
