Adiponectin ELISA Kit (Rat)

  • Created on the 28 October, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Adiponectin (AdipoQ, Acrp30, apM1, GBP-28) functions as a hormone which is responsible for modulating a number of different processes such as glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation. It is secreted into the bloodstream from adipose tissues and is regarded as one of the abundant proteins which is present in the plasma. Scientists have used rats and mice as model organisms to investigate basic research and to carry out a large number of pre-clinical studies. Also, they have used many different cell culture models and studies in human patients. Adiponectin is vital in suppressing metabolic derangements which can result in atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obesity.

INTENDED USE

Rat adiponectin ELISA kit can be used for determining quantitative amounts of adiponectin in rat serum or plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of < 0.081 ng/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of adiponectin using this rat adiponectin ELISA kit was approximately 0.081 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 0.25 – 10.0 ng/ml.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
