N-ERC/Mesothelin ELISA Kit (Mouse)


Mouse N-ERC/Mesothelin ELISA kit is a protocol intended for analysing quantitative levels of mouse N-ERC or mesothelin in samples of cell supernatant, serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.15 ng/ml.


ERC was first discovered as a gene that was expressed highly in cancer affected renal tissue when compared to normal renal tissues in Eker rats. The megakaryocyte potentiating factor (MPF) or the mesothelin are the equivalent human homologue of this protein. This protein has a major involvement in mesothelioma and it is can be detected regularly in mesothelial cells. It is expressed as a 71 kDa GPI anchor-type membrane protein which is often digested to release 31 kDa and 40 kDa fragments. The following procedure is suitable for detecting many different types of diagnostic applications and it is specifically designed for the detection of the N-ERC and mesothelin (31 kDa fragment).


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.
