This DuoSet ELISA Development kit contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs to measure natural and recombinant human CA125 / MUC16. The suggested diluent is suitable for the analysis of most cell culture supernate samples. Diluents for complex matrices, such as serum and plasma, should be evaluated prior to use in this DuoSet ELISA.
Optimized capture and detection antibody pairings with recommended concentrations save lengthy development time
Development protocols are provided to guide further assay optimization
Assay can be customized to your specific needs
Economical alternative to complete kits
Streptavidin conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (Streptavidin-HRP)

The CA125 antigen, also known as MUC16, is a mucin protein that may be found in type I transmembrane or secreted forms that are used monitor the progress of epithelial ovarian cancer therapy. Expression of isoforms, proteolytic cleavage, and heavy N- and O- linked glycosylation produce forms of human CA125 that can vary from 200-5000 kDa in size. It inhibits NK cell activity, which is thought to contribute to immune evasion in peritoneal cancer and pregnancy.
