Full Name: Amyloid Beta 42 ELISA Kit (Aβ42)
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Tissue Homogenates, Plasma, Biological Fluids, Serum
Sensitivity: 2.813 pg/ml


The amino acid makeup of amyloid beta, often known as abeta or A, ranges from 36 to 43. The essential elements of amyloid plaques are these peptides. These plaques are found in high concentrations in Alzheimer’s patients, are present in the brain. Several studies show that that the soluble oligomeric form of the peptide, particularly the A oligomers, is the primary factor responsible for the advancement of Alzheimer’s disease.

The successive cleavage of the APP, or amyloid procurer protein, produces amyloid beta oligomers. The APP is broken down by the proteolytic enzymes alpha, beta and gamma secretase. It is the sequential action of the beta and gamma secretases results in the creation of the amyloid beta peptide. Moreover, several isoforms with lengths between 30 and 51 amino acids are produced. The amyloid beta 40 and 42 isoforms are two of the more prevalent types.


Human amyloid beta 42 ELISA kit can detect concentrations of amyloid beta 42 (Aβ42, Aβ1-42, amyloid beta 1-42) present in human samples of tissue homogenates, serum, plasma and other biological fluids.


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.

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.
