The Mercodia Mouse Insulin ELISA is an easy-to-use assay based on highly specific monoclonal antibodies with insignificant or no cross-reactivity to C-peptide or proinsulin.
Read the Directions for Use
Mercodia Mouse Insulin ELISA provides a method for the quantitative determination of insulin in mouse serum, plasma or cell culture medium.
Format: 1 x 96 wells
Samples: serum, plasma or cell culture medium
Sample volume: 10 μL (5 μL, see TN34-0130)
Assay range: 0.2 - 6.5 μg/L
Detection limit: ≤ 0.2 μg/L
Incubation: (min) 120+15
The detection limit is ≤ 0.2 μg/L as determined with the
methodology described in ISO11843-Part 4.
Recovery upon addition is 100 - 130 % (111 %).
Recovery upon dilution is 109 - 149 % (130 %).
Each sample was analyzed in 4 replicates on 16 different
|Sample||Mean Value||Coefficient of variation|

Mercodia Mouse Insulin ELISA is a solid phase two-site enzyme immunoassay based on the sandwich technique, in which two monoclonal antibodies are directed against separate antigenic determinants on the insulin molecule. Insulin in the sample reacts with anti-insulin antibodies bound to microtitration wells and peroxidase-conjugated anti-insulin antibodies in the solution.
