Product Summary

The Quantikine Human/Canine/Porcine Insulin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure Insulin in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains S. cerevisiae-expressed recombinant human Insulin and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural Insulin showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring Insulin.


The recovery of Insulin spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 95 85-108
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 95 86-102
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 92 85-105
Serum (n=4) 96 87-103


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of Insulin were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: Insulin

Insulin and the IGFs are members of the insulin family of molecules. IGF-I and II are structurally homologous to proinsulin, and can be thought of as taking the shape of an exaggerated, inverted letter G. Intrachain disulfide bonds link sections of the G. The single chain insulin propeptide consists of a 30 amino acid B chain (aa 2554), a C-peptide (aa 5589), and a 21 aa A chain (aa 90110). Removal of the C-peptide by proteolysis enables the formation of mature Insulin, a disulfidelinked heterodimer of the A and B chains. Circulating C-peptide levels are elevated in hyperinsulinism, obesity, and type II diabetes.

Sample Tested: Heparin Plasma

Ran here according to manufacturers instructions vs a Duoset Kit (#DY8056-05) before purchasing multiple kits for large study. Human heparinised plasma from an IVGTT, ran in both plates at the same time, by the same researcher on the same aliquots.

Broadly - Duoset signal was stronger throughout, and resultant IVGTT curve was smoother. Quantikine kit may be underexposed with 30 minutes substrate development in the Quantikine instructions? We've moved forward with the Duosets.
