  • Product overview

    Abcam’s rat KIM-1 (TIM-1) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of rat KIM-1 (TIM-1) in cell culture supernatants, tissue homogenates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA) and urine.

    A KIM-1 (TIM-1) specific mouse monoclonal antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and incubated. A biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for KIM-1 (TIM-1) is then added followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. TMB is then used to visualize the HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the rat KIM-1 (TIM-1) amount of sample captured in plate.

I can confirm that PBS and homogenization will be absolutely fine and can be used flawlessly with the kit. Using tissue lysis buffer/solution is even better but PBS alone should work perfectly well.

The pH of rat urine is close to 7.0, and there is no need to adjust the pH before use with the kit.

Thank you for contacting us.
We have several TIM1 antibodies (TIM1 is a synonym for KIM1).
Two of these antibodies were tested in IHC with paraffin sections with human and mouse, but not rat.
If you like to try using these antibodies in ...
