Monkey IGF-1 ELISA Kit (Insulin Like Growth Factor 1)

Full Name: Monkey IGF-1 ELISA Kit (Insulin Like Growth Factor 1)
Reactivity: Monkey
Sample Type: Plasma, Biological Fluids, Serum, Tissue Homogenates
Sensitivity: 0.094 ng/ml


Insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) is a polypeptide hormone involved in regulating growth and development during pregnancy or after birth. It is a 70-amino acid polypeptide hormone that was first described as somatomedin C. It stimulates cell division, protein synthesis, glucose uptake and other metabolic activities necessary for growth. It also plays a role in muscle repair and recovery after injury or exercise. IGF1 is also a marker of placental growth and function. In mice, IGF1 is necessary to maintain pregnancy throughout the first eight days after birth, but it is dispensable thereafter.

IGF-1 is a growth factor belonging to the insulin family. It is structurally similar to pro-insulin, it binds and activates insulin receptors in the body. Elevated levels are linked with cancer, diabetes and obesity. IGF-1 is a hormone aids the development and repair of cells, as well as the production of proteins.


Monkey IGF-1 ELISA kit is ideal for measuring amounts of insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1, IGF-I, IGF1A, IGF1B, mechano growth factor, MGF, somatomedin C) present in monkey biological fluids, serum, plasma and tissue homogenates.


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.

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.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.
