FGF9 ELISA Kit (Fibroblast Growth Factor-9)


Human FGF9 ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring fibroblast growth factor-9 (FGF-9, FGF9) in human serum, plasma, biological fluids and tissue homogenates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 37.5 pg/ml.


Fibroblast growth factor-9 (FGF9, FGF-9) is involved in biological processes such as; cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, invasion, embryonic development and tumor growth. The cDNA has been cloned using oligonucleotide probes that encode a polypeptide consisting of 208 amino acids and it share approx. 30% sequence similarity to the other FGF-family members.

FGF9 is produced and secreted by the prostatic stromal cells, it is a survival factor for mesenchymal or nerve cells and a potent mitogen activator for both prostatic stromal or epithelial cells in culture. It is a growth factor that is abundantly secreted and can act as either an autocrine mitogen for stromal cells or a paracrine mitogen for epithelial cells.

The standard that is used in this assay is a recombinant anti human FGF9 that is made up of 208 amino acids and has a molecular mass of 23KDa, due to glycosylation, the molecular mass can be between 25-27KDa.


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 fibroblast growth factor-9 (FGF-9, FGF9) using current FGF9 ELISA kit was approximately 37.5 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 62.5 – 4,000.0 pg/ml.

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.
