Adiponectin ELISA Kit (Rat)


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.


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.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

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.
