Mouse Leptin ELISA Kit

Full Name: Mouse Leptin ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Mouse
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma (EDTA), Cell Culture Supernant
Sensitivity: 0.86 pg/ml


Leptin is crucial for controlling appetite, food intake and body weight. It can operate as a particular receptor in the hypothalamus to reduce appetite through a mix of stimulatory and counteractive methods. It is secreted from fat cells found in adipose tissue. A number of studies have also indicated that the absence within the body or leptin-resistance can result in uncontrolled weight gain and feeding. behaviour. When this happens, weight gain may occur despite an apparently normal caloric intake. Leptin resistance may contribute to the onset of obesity, according to some data.

Leptin in unable to affect food intake from one meal to another but instead acts in order to alter food intake and control energy expenditure over the long term. The quantity of body fat and the levels present in the blood have a direct relationship i.e. the greater the body fat levels then the more leptin that is present within the blood. A rare genetic condition where the body in unable to produce-leptin is called congenital leptin deficiency, this rare condition makes the body think it has zero fat and leads to severe childhood obesity due to uncontrolled food intake. Leptin-injections are available in order to treat this condition and this can result in dramatic weight loss.


Mouse leptin ELISA kit is designed for measuring quantitative concentrations of leptin using mouse samples of plasma, serum and cell culture supernatant. This assay  has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.86 pg/ml.


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.
