Rat LRG ELISA kit can be used for qualitative measurement of leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (leucine rich alpha-2-glycoprotein, LRG) using rat serum, urine, culture supernatant and EDTA-plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.68 ng/ml.


Leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (LRG) belongs to a family of protein that are rich in leucine repeats. LRG are involved in a large number of processes which can include signal transduction, cell adhesion, protein to protein interactions and cell development. The levels of LRG serum levels have been reported to be significantly elevated in the cerebrospinal fluid in iNPH and in rheumatoid arthritis patients when compared to healthy controls.


The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (LRG, leucine rich alpha-2-glycoprotein) using current rat LRG ELISA kit is 1.68 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 6.25 – 500 ng/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA 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 assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's 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. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
