Neopterin ELISA Kit

Full Name: Neopterin ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Plasma, Tissue Homogenates, Biological Fluids, Serum
Sensitivity: 0.094 ng/ml


Recent years have seen neopterin become more widely recognised as a diagnostic biomarker for immune system activation. Elevated levels are present in either CSF or plasma and it is widely regarded as a sensitive yet non-specific biological marker for many inflammatory and immune mediated disorders.

IFN-produced by T cells is the principal inducer of neopterin secretion from activated macrophages. This pteridine is an indicator of cardiovascular risk where the levels have also been linked to peripheral artery disease and carotid atherosclerosis, according to several clinical investigations. Neopterin a therapeutic target for treating certain inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. For example; drugs that inhibit the production have been proposed as a potential treatment for HIV/AIDS and other viral infections.


Human neopterin ELISA kit is ideal for analysing neopterin present in human serum, tissue homogenates, plasma and other biological samples.


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.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

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.

Dr. C. Davies
Lead Scientists / AstraZeneca

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.
