  • 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.

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 ...
