MCP-1 ELISA Kit (Rat)


Rat MCP-1 ELISA kit is intended for detecting qualitative concentrations of rat monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP1, MCP-1) using urine, serum and cell media supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 40.0 pg/ml.


Monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) is also sometimes referred to as small inducible cytokine A2 or chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2). It is a monomeric peptide (approx. 13kDa) and has a primary role of recruiting monocytes, dendritic and memory T cells to the sites of inflammation. PDGF has been found to be a major inducer of the CCL2 gene and it has been implicated in the pathogeneses of a number of diseases which are characteristic of monocytic infiltration, examples include: rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and atherosclerosis.


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.

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.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
