ChemiKine Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) kit is a sandwich enzyme immunoassay (EIA), which measures BDNF. The kit will measure BDNF from human and rat. Test Principle: With the ChemiKine BDNF assay system, rabbit polyclonal antibodies generated against human BDNF are coated onto a microplate and are used to capture BDNF from a sample. BDNF specific, biotin conjugated, mouse monoclonal antibodies detect the captured BDNF. After addition of streptavidin-enzyme, substrate and stop solution the amount of BDNF is determined. The standard curve demonstrates a direct relationship between Optical Density (OD) and BDNF concentration: i.e., the higher the OD the higher the BDNF concentration in the sample. Application: ChemiKine BDNF kit is designed to measure the amount of BDNF in cell culture supernatants, tissue homogenates and biological fluid (serum, plasma, and serum-free) samples from human and rat. There are enough reagents included in this kit for two 96-well immuno-assay plates. Running duplicate wells for samples and standards is recommended. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Application: Used to detect/quantify: BDNF
