Sensitivity: 0.938 pg/ml


Thromboxane B2 is a thromboxane A metabolite. It is nearly entirely eliminated in the urine. Aspirin, which suppresses the COX-1 enzyme and thus lowers thromboxane A2 levels, targets its synthesis. It is a steady thromboxane A2 degradation product that is excreted by the kidneys as 11-dehydro TXB-2 (d-TXB 2). It causes arterial constriction as well as platelet clumping and aggregation. A long-term inflammatory condition of the artery wall called atherosclerosis frequently results in increased cholesterol being accumulated in the arteries. TXB2 is a pro-inflammatory substance produced by macrophages, is reportedly essential for the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. It also encourages leukocyte transit across it and strengthens their cling to endothelial cells, both of which contribute to atherosclerosis.

Thromboxane B2 does not play a role in platelet stimulation and aggregation in the presence of a wound, but its precursor, thromboxane A2, does. TXB-2 levels in the blood correspond with platelet COX-1 activation and TXB-2 synthesis. Platelets respond to increased levels of TXB2 by decreasing synthesis of TXA2, which in turn leads to decreased aggregation, or the ability of platelets to stick together and help create a clot. This is important because when platelets are activated they are more likely to aggregate, which can lead to clots in arteries, causing a heart attack and stroke. TXB A1 deficiency at the site of a wound may lead to undesirable effects such as retention or accumulation of fluid within the wound space so that it cannot be drained and treated effectively.


Thromboxane B2 ELISA kit is ideal for analysing levels of TXB2 (thromboxane B2) present is various biological fluids, serum, tissue homogenate and plasma samples.

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.
