GIP Active Form ELISA Kit (Rat)

  • Created on the 22 February, 2018.


Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is a member of the secretin family of hormones and one of its major functions is stimulating the secretion of insulin. It can also help in the protection of the small intestine from stomach acid by acting as a weak inhibitor of gastric acid. It can be synthesised by K cells and circulates as a biologically active peptide of 42 amino acids in length. It is transported by blood similar to all other endocrine hormones. GIP has also been associated with important roles in bone remodelling, obesity and Type 2 diabetes.


Rat GIP active ELISA kit is designed for quantitative analysis of rat gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) active form using plasma-EDTA. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.43 pg/ml.


The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) using this rat GIP active ELISA kit was approximately 0.43 pg/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 2.3 – 150.0 pg/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

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.

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.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
