GIP Active Form ELISA Kit (Rat)


Rat GIP active ELISA kit is designed for quantitative analysis of rat active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP active for, GIP [1-42]) using plasma-EDTA. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.43 pg/ml.


Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is a proprotein which is made up of 153 amino acids, it is a member of the secretin family. One of the primary function of this protein is to stimulate the secretion of insulin, other important roles include inhibiting the secretion of gastric acid and thereby aiding in protecting the small intestines from getting damaged by the stomach acid. There are recent finding indicating that GIP could have critical roles in bone remodelling and the absence of GIP receptors have a direct correlation to resistance to obesity in knockout mice experiments.


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 rat active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP active, GIP [1-42]) using current rat GIP active ELISA kit was approximately 0.43 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 2.3 – 150.0 pg/ml.

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.
