Adrenaline (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine) are extracted by using a cis-diol-specific affinity gel, acylated and then converted enzymatically. The competitive ELISA kit uses the microtiter plate format. The antigen is bound to the solid phase of the microtiter plate. The derivatized standards, controls and samples and the solid phase bound analytes compete for a fixed number of antibody binding sites. After the system is in equilibrium, free antigen and free antigen-antibody complexes are removed by washing. The antibody bound to the solid phase is detected by an anti-rabbit IgG-peroxidase conjugate using TMB as a substrate. The reaction is monitored at 450 nm. Quantification of unknown samples is achieved by comparing their absorbance with a standard curve prepared with known standard concentrations.

FAQs for Epinephrine/Norepinephrine ELISA Kit (KA1877). (Showing 1 - 5 of 5 FAQs).

  1. Can it be used with the samples from sheep?
    • The KA1877 was developed and validated for the use of human samples. Since Epinephrine, Norepinephrine are brain derived chemicals, these targets are not species specific, theoretically all kinds of species can be used. Meaning, this kit should work for whatever species as long as the target exists in the species systems.
  2. Can it be used with tissue homogenates?
    • This kit was not validated for tissue homogenates, so if this customer would like to test it, we cannot guarantee the kit will work.
  3. Is this assay for use in rat plasma? The species is not listed.
    • The kit should work for any species as the target should be the same across all species.
  4. Can this kit be used with rat serum/plasma?
    • Rat serum and plasma samples can be tested with the KA1894, KA1891 and KA1877. There is no species cross-reactivity between rat samples and the antisera of our assays.
  5. Hi! I'm interested in your nor/epi elisa kit (KA1877). However, I have urine and serum samples. I only see plasma and urine listed as suitable sample types, so wanted to confirm whether serum could possibly be used
    • This assay has not been validated for serum as serum is not the sample of choice for catecholamine determination. This does not mean that serum cannot be measured, just that for clinical use this does not make sense. Due to the extraction system prior to the ELISA many types of samples could be used, including serum. In summary: for clinical purposes EDTA plasma is the sample of choice. For research purposes serum could be used, but it is up to the researcher to find out if catecholamine determination in serum will provide the required information.
