CK-MB ELISA Kit (Creatine Kinase MB)


Human CK-MB ELISA kit is intended for detecting in vitro quantitative concentrations of creatine kinase MB (CK-MB) in human cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma, other biological fluids and cell lysates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.94 ng/ml.


Creatine kinase (CK) was previously known as creatine phosphokinase, is an intracellular enzyme that is found in heart, brain and muscles. It is known to exit as three different isoenzymes CK-MB, CK-MM and CK-BB. CK-MB is most frequently found in the muscles of the heart, CK-MM can be found in the skeletal and voluntary muscles of the body and CK-BB is found in the brain, smooth and involuntary muscles of the body.

Creatine kinase MB is released into blood when there is damage to the heart muscles, for example during a heart attack, the levels rise to around 3-6 hours after the onset of chest pains and they peak at 12-24 and the return to normal levels around 48-72 hours. This assay is a useful marker for the heart in order to identify if any trauma or injury has taken place. However, a troponin test is normally the first choice since it is more specific for damage to the heart but if this is not available then CK-MB is considered an acceptable substitute.


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.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

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.
