Mature BDNF Rapid ELISA Kit: Human, Mouse, Rat (1 plate)
DescriptionThe Biosensis Mature BDNF RapidTM enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) Kit is a sandwich ELISA that allows the quantification of mature BDNF in less than 3 hours in cell culture supernatants, serum, plasma (citrate and EDTA), cell lysates, human milk and brain extracts only if used as directed, with a simplified protocol and no loss of sensitivity or specificity. Please refer to the kit protocol for specific use instructions for each substrate application, in particular blood samples. Note that accurate quantification of BDNF in human milk requires a secretory IgA (sIgA) blocker which can be purchased separately (). For measurement of mature BDNF in CSF samples, please contact us at
This ELISA kit has been tested in independent research laboratories and found to achieve highest reproducibility with intra- and inter-assay CVs as low as 1% and 5%, respectively (Polacchini et al., 2015). .
This ELISA kit consists of a pre-coated mouse monoclonal anti-mature BDNF capture antibody, a biotinylated anti-mature BDNF detection antibody and horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated streptavidin. The addition of a substrate (3,3€™,5,5€™-tetramethylbenzidine, TMB) yields a coloured reaction product which is directly proportional to the concentration of mature BDNF present in samples and protein standards. A BDNF positive control (QC sample) is provided to assure consistent assay performance.
This Mature BDNF ELISA kit employs a recombinant human mature BDNF standard approved by the World Health Organization (WHO, ). The amino acid sequence of mature BDNF is identical for human, mouse, rat and a number of other species. This kit therefore is suitable to measure mature BDNF in all these species and uses the same antibodies and antigen.
This ELISA kit has not been tested for other applications. It has been configured for research use only and is not to be used for diagnostic or clinical procedures. For in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) applications in the European Economic Area (EEA), we refer to the CE Marked BDNF RapidTM ELISA kit
