Human adrenaline ELISA kit is a reliable and accurate in vitro quantitative procedure for analysing adrenaline (epinephrine) in human plasma and urine samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.01 pg/ml (P) and 0.8 ng/ml (U).
Adrenaline (also called epinephrine), is secreted by the medulla of the adrenal glands. Strong emotions (especially fear or anger) are responsible for causing it to be released into the bloodstream. This process results in increasing the heart rate, blood pressure, sugar metabolism and muscle strength, it is often referred to as the “flight or fight response”. The main function of this response is to prepare the body for strenuous activity.
Adrenaline can cause the smooth muscles to relax, especially those that are contained in the lungs. It is able to bind specifically to the beta-2-adrenergic receptors on bronchiole muscle cells and this causes the bronchioles to relax, which enables intensified respiration. In heart muscle cells epinephrine is able to bind beta-adrenergic receptors which results in increasing the contraction rate of the heart, this ultimately leading to elevated levels of blood supply to the tissues within the body.
The following kit is a competitive assay where the sample has been extracted through a cis-diol-specific affinity gel, acylated and then derivatized enzymatically.
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.

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of adrenaline (epinephrine) using current epinephrine ELISA kit was approximately 0.8 ng/ml (U) and 0.01 pg/ml (P). The dynamic range for this assay is 1 – 200 ng/ml.
– Expected Reference Value: < 20 µg/day (Urine) and < 100 pg/mL (Plasma).
– Analytical Sensitivity (Limit of Detection): 0.3 ng/mL (Urine) and 10 pg/mL.
– Analytical Specificity (Cross Reactivity): Derivatized Adrenaline (100%), Derivatized Noradrenaline (0.20%), Derivatized Dopamine (< 0.0007%), Metanephrine (0.64%), Normetanephrine (0.0009%), 3-Methoxytyramine (< 0.0007%), 3-Methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (0.03%), Tyramine (< 0.0007%), Phenylalanine, Caffeinic acid, L-Dopa, Homovanillic acid, Tyrosine, 3-Methoxy-4-hydroxymandelic acid (< 0.0007%).
