Rat VEGF ELISA kit can be used for analysing quantitative concentrations of rat vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF) in EDTA-plasma and supernatant of cell culture media. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 5.44 pg/ml.


Vascular endothelial cell growth factor which is commonly referred to as VEGF for short is a homodimeric protein that was originally discovered in bovine conditioned pituitary folliculo-stellate cells. This protein is identical to vascular permeability factor (VPF) and shares many of the common activities displayed by this factor such as stimulation of endothelial cell growth, angiogenesis and capillary permeability. The expression of VEGF in normal human tissues is present in many cells such as: renal glomerular visceral epithelium, hepatocytes, embryonic fibroblasts, Leydig cells, smooth muscle cells, mesangial cells, bronchial and choroids plexus epithelium, activated macrophages and renal glomerular visceral epithelium.


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.

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.

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.

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.
