Product Summary
The R&D Systems cAMP Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour competitive enzyme immunoassay designed to measure cAMP in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue homogenates, plasma, and urine.

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.
Cell Culture Supernates, Cell Lysates, Tissue Homogenates, EDTA Plasma, Urine
Intra-Assay Precision Inter-Assay Precision
Standard Deviation0.513.


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

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Samples (n=4) 100 98-103
Cell Lysates (n=2) 106 106-107
Mouse EDTA Plasma (n=4) 97 92-101
Rat EDTA Plasma (n=4) 104 101-108
Tissue Homogenates (n=4) 110 105-115
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of cAMP were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: cAMP

Adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) is one of the most important intracellular second messengers. Several hormones are known to activate cAMP and subsequent signaling cascades via their indirect influence on adenylate cyclase, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of ATP to cAMP.
