- Kit Principle:
- Aviva Systems Biology INS ELISA Kit (Rat) (OKEH02985) is based on a competitive enzyme immuno assay technique. The microtiter well-plate in this kit has been pre-coated with an anti-rat INS antibody. Sample or standards are added to the wells along with a fixed quantity of biotinylated INS and incubated. The INS found in the sample or standards competes with the biotinylated INS for limited binding sites on the immobilized anti-rat INS antibody. Excess unbound biotinylated INS and sample or standard INS is washed from the plate. Avidin-HRP conjugate is added, incubated and washed. An enzymatic reaction is then produced through the addition of TMB substrate which is catalyzed by the immobilized HRP to generate a blue color product that changes yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is measured by reading the absorbance at 450 nm which is quantitatively proportional to the amount of biotinylated INS captured in the well and inversely proportional to the amount of INS which was contained in the sample or standard.
