Will ab119602 and ab100786 work with urine? Will ab100740 work with rat?

Thank you for contacting us.
First, I want to apologize to you for the delay in gathering this information. I hope this did not cause you any inconveniences.
In regards to using rat tissues in our SCF Mouse ELISA kit, there is no cross reactivity data testing this mouse kit (ab100740) with rat samples so we do not know. However, we do know that the antibody pair is binding somewhere on the extracellular domain of the SCF protein and that mouse and rat share ˜93% homology on the extracellular domain. Therefore there is a good chance that there will be cross reactivity. Nevertheless, the only way to be certain would be to test.
As to your questions about using urine with ab100786 and ab119602.
Ab119602 will work with urine future datasheets will include this.
While ab100786 was not validated with urine samples (only serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants) these types of kit are very accommodating to many types of samples so I see no reason why urine or any other body fluid for that matter would not be compatible with this kit.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
