Product Summary

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


Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians using one lot of components

Background: SHBG

SHBG (Sex Hormone-binding Globulin), also known as ABP (Androgen-binding Protein), is a variably glycosylated, secreted, non-disulfide-linked homodimer. Male and female sex hormones bind SHBG with equal affinity. This binding protein can be found in the circulation where it regulates hormone access to target tissues. Human SHBG shares approximately 67% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat SHBG.
