Thyroglobulin ELISA Kit

INTENDED USE

Human thyroglobulin ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring hTG (human thyroglobulin) in serum or plasma. The lowest sensitivity detection limit of this assay is 1.0 ng/ml.

BACKGROUND

Human thyroglobulin (hTG) is a multiple glycosylated, water soluble iodoprotein that has a molecular weight of approx. 660,000 Daltons shared by two identical subunits. It is synthesised in the thyrocytes of the thyroid gland and then later secreted into the lumen of the thyroid follicles, which eventually becomes the precursors of the T3 and T4 thyroid hormones. The circulating levels of hTG are found to be increased in several thyroid disorders such as differentiated thyroid carcinoma, non-toxic goiter, thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism.

A main application for the human thyroglobulin determination is the post-surgical monitoring of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma. Also, its measurement is a special prognostic value to Graves disease patients who are undergoing therapy. The circulating human thyroglobulin can act as a good indicator of recurrent tumors (in particular metastasis marker), it can also be used to confirm already established clinical values, for example the increase of thyroglobulinaemia is a good indicator that further analysis is needed in order to confirm the diagnosis.

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
