Product Summary

The Quantikine Human Lipocalin-2 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Lipocalin-2 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, urine, and saliva. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Lipocalin-2 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human Lipocalin-2 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 human Lipocalin-2.

Precision

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision

Background: Lipocalin-2/NGAL

The Lipocalin family comprises a diverse group of mostly secreted soluble proteins that bind hydrophobic ligands and act as transporters, carrying small molecules to specific cells. Lipocalins are related by possessing an 8-stranded beta-barrel structure. Lipocalin-1, also named tear lipocalin (TL), von Ebners gland protein (VEG) and tear pre-albumin, binds a large number of hydrophobic molecules and exhibits cysteine proteinase inhibitor and endonuclear activities. Lipocalin-2, also known as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), is a component of granules in neutrophils from tissues that are normally exposed to microorganisms and is upregulated during inflammation. Lipocalin-2 can form homodimers and can heterodimerize with the neutrophil gelatinase MMP-9.

The conjugate must remain at 2-8 °C during use. Bring all other reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

  5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
  6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at 2-8 °C for 2 hours.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

  8. 200 µL cold Conjugate
  9.   Add 200 µL of cold Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at 2-8 °C for 2 hours.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

  11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

Human Lipocalin-2/NGAL Quantikine ELISA Kit
By Stephen Brindley on 04/24/2018
Sample Tested: Urine

Most urine samples fell within the curve at a 1 to 2 dilution. The higher NGAL samples required dilution at 1 to 10


Human Lipocalin-2/NGAL Quantikine ELISA Kit

Sample Tested: Serum

Performed ideally and is probably the best kit for analyzing lipocalin2 out there! Although results should be analyzed at once after completion as saving the ELISA plate over night creates dark spots inside of the wells (see picture/data). Don´t forget to dilute serum!
