Presepsin ELISA Kit (Presepsin/Soluble CD14)

Full Name: Presepsin ELISA Kit (Presepsin/Soluble CD14)
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Serum, Tissue Homogenates, Plasma, Biological Fluids,
Sensitivity:  0.094 ng/ml


Presepsin (soluble CD14) is a 13kDa protein produced by cleavage of the CD14 receptor. It is generated when the membrane-bound CD14 receptor is proteolytically cleaved in response to bacterial lipopolysaccharides and other microbial compounds. It has also been found as a valuable biomarker, the levels of which may be utilised to identify sepsis. Proteolytic cleavage of the membrane-bound CD14 receptor releases a soluble fraction, which is proteolytically cleaved further.

Presepsin levels in the blood rise nearly twofold in the presence of sepsis, peaking within 24 hours after diagnosis. After 24 hours, the levels immediately reach a stable state and then progressively fall. Serum levels have been demonstrated to stay steady for up to 5 days following an initial septic insult, with no difference between known survivors and those who died during this period. The major clearance pathway for presepsin is via hepatic metabolism.

Presepsin has a molecular weight of 11,370 Daltons and consists of an amino acid chain folded into four domains (A to D). The A domain runs along the N-terminus; it contains three disulfide bridges and a single thiol group in its cysteine residue at position 5. The B domain starts at Val-330; it also contains six disulfide bonds with two thiol groups in As p-296 and Asp-329, a single thiol group in Glu-327, and a serine residue at position 16. The C domain starts at Ala-337; it contains two disulfide bonds with one thiol group in Arg-346 and an aspartic acid residue at position 41. The D domain begins three residues before the N terminus; it also contains four disulfide bonds and an aspartic acid residue at position 53.


Human presepsin ELISA kit is intending for measuring levels of presepsin (soluble CD14 subtype) present in human samples of plasma, serum, biological fluids and tissue homogenates.

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.
