  • Product overview

    Abcam’s rat Lipocalin-2 (NGAL) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of rat Lipocalin-2 in cell culture supernatants, serum plasma (heparin) and urine.

    A Lipocalin-2 specific mouse monoclonal antibody for Lipocalin-2 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 Lipocalin-2 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 Lipocalin-2 amount of sample captured in plate.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us and for your patience in this matter.

I had the lab look at the data and they think concentration of the samples are too high, that caused the hook effect.
Thus we suggest to perform serial dilutions for serum 1:10 to 1:100. When the OD values have an obvious tendency to drop, then you can choose the best dilution.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us.

Because the working concentration and the sensitivity is different in WB and ELISA, we don't suggest to use the antibodies in our Elisa kit in WB.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

As I’m not familiar with these items, I tried to find the ab codes through your site.
For the items I found a relative code I have update the list.
For those I don’t have a reference code, this is because either no products matches or all available products reacts for humans when we need them for pigs.
So please check the list again and advice.

I have received information regarding

ab119589 Cystatin C Human ELISA Kit
ab119590 Cystatin C Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119596 KIM1 Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119597 KIM1 Rat ELISA Kit
ab119601 Lipocalin-2 / NGAL Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119601 Lipocalin-2 / NGAL Mouse ELISA Kit

these has not been tested with Swine or pig samples so we are unable to confirm the species cross reactivity. It mean only ab100755, ab100756, ab108674, ab108794, ab113352, ab113353 are OK to use with Porcine samples and are guaranteed. Would you like to have a quote for these antibodies.

I hope this info will be helpful. Should you require more information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Question
Answer

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.
