sICAM-1 ELISA Kit (Soluble Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1)


Human sICAM-1 ELISA kit is designed for analysing in vitro quantitative concentrations of soluble intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM1, CD54, sICAM-1) in human  tissue homogenates, serum, plasma and other biological fluids and cell lysates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.469 ng/ml.


sICAM-1 mainly represents the circulating form which is usually found to be inducible or constitutively expressed on the cell surface many different cell lines. This molecule has been discovered as an important marker for acute respiratory tract infection and adhesion molecules which are responsible for mediating leukocyte-endothelial interactions.

sICAM-1 serum levels have also been identified to be elevated in insulin-dependent diabetis mellitus, allergic inflammation, anterior uveitis and acute renal graft rejection. They represent important biomarkers for a number of inflammatory responses that are responsible for damage or activation to cells such as endothelium and platelets. Many studies have postulated an increase production of these molecules on vascular endothelium (blood vessel lining) which could play a vital role in the development of arterial plaques.


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 detection sensitivity level of soluble intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1, CD54, sICAM1) using current sICAM-1 ELISA kit was 0.469 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 0.781 – 50 ng/ml.


– Specificity: Highly specific for sICAM-1/CD54, no cross reactivity or interference between sICAM-1/CD54 and analogues was detected.
– Recovery: Serum (92 – 104%), EDTA Plasma (92 – 104%), Heparin Plasma (86 – 103%).
– Linearity: Serum (95 – 105%), EDTA Plasma (85 – 100%), Heparin Plasma (80 – 92%).
– Precison Intra-Assay: CV < 8%.
– Precison Inter-Assay: CV < 10%.

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.

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.
