Intact PTH ELISA Kit (Parathyroid Hormone)


Human intact PTH ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative method for measuring intact parathyroid hormone (intact parathormone, intact PTH, parathyrin) in human serum samples. This assay has a sensitivity detection limit of 1.72 pg/ml.


Parathyroid hormone (PTH) that is also referred to either parathormone or parathyrin is a molecular precursor that is made up of 115 amino acids and is biosynthesised as a pre-proparathyroid hormone in the parathyroid gland. Following sequential intracellular cleavage and proteolytic modification the proparathyroid hormone is eventually converted to an 84 amino acid polypeptide which is parathyroid hormone.

Parathyroid hormone levels have been found to be elevated in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism, this makes it a specific and helpful tool for diagnosing it. The regulation of PTH secretion in healthy individuals occurs through a negative feedback mechanism of serum calcium on the parathyroid glands. The biologically active form has a half-life of under four minutes and has the ability to clear rapidly from circulation.


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.

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of human intact parathyroid hormone (parathormone, intact PTH, parathyrin) using current intact PTH ELISA kit was approximately 1.72 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 12.7 – 966 pg/ml.

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.
