  • Product overview

    Periostin in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Periostin protein in mouse serum, plasma, cell culture supernatant samples

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB Development Solution is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

    Periostin (OSF-2) is a cellular adhesion protein expressed in the periosteum and periodontal ligament, in cells undergoing mechanical stress, and in the developing and adult heart. Periostin binds extracellular matrix proteins involved in tissue remodeling of processes like wound healing, fibrous dysplasia bone lesions, and fibrosis.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.


  • Standard Curve comparison between mouse Periostin SimpleStep ELISA kit and traditional ELISA kit from leading competitor. SimpleStep ELISA kit shows increased sensitivity.

  • The Periostin standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The Periostin standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of Periostin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Periostin standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 1: 100, plasma (citrate) 1: 100, plasma (heparin) 1: 100, and plasma (EDTA) 1: 100. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Periostin concentration was determined to be 293.6 ng/mL in serum, 347.4 ng/mL in plasma (citrate), 219.8 ng/ml in plasma (heparin), and 161.1 ng/ml in plasma (EDTA).
