In the laboratory, ELISA is used to quantitatively measure or qualitatively detect any number of different target antigens. ELISAs are able to detect and quantify a wide variety of antigenic targets including peptides, proteins, antibodies, hormones, and small molecules.
When choosing an ELISA kit, most researchers demand an assay that is sensitive, specific, and highly-validated.
A sensitive assay is able to detect antigen at a very low titer in sample matrix (sometimes as low as pg/mL). A specific assay measures the target antigen only, and does not cross react with other common components inside normal sample matrices. A validated assay is accompanied by a sufficient quantity of data to confirm that both the sensitivity and specificity of the assay are consistent with the advertised specifications.
All of the ELISA kits below manufactured in Canada by a leading assay lab and are validated by rigorous lot-specific QC testing including Western blot analysis to show specificity of capture and detection Abs. The kits are supplemented by precise, sample-type specific isolation and assay instructions to ensure a smooth workflow.
Sporting industry leading validation data, our first selection of kits are primarily directed against human heat-shock proteins (HSPs) which play an important role in the proper assembly of nascent protein.
About the antigens:
HSPs are core components of various cellular pathways that manage cellular stress response and maintain proper protein synthesis, folding, oligomerization and protein transport and oxidative stress.
