Luteinizing Hormone, Human (LH) BioAssay ELISA Kit

£749.27 96 Tests

hLH (human Luteinizing Hormone (hLH) is found in the anterior pituitary gland. It induces ovulation and regulates progesterone and estrogen production by the ovaries and testes. LH levels are measured to aid diagnosing the source of certain infertility problems and to ascertain the existence of a pituitary tumor.

Principles of the Assay:
This LH enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) applies a technique called a quantitative sandwich immunoassay. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre- coated with a monoclonal antibody specific for LH. Standards or samples are then added to the microtiter plate wells and LH if present, will bind to the antibody pre-coated on the wells. In order to quantitate the amount of LH present in the sample, a standardized preparation of horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated polyclonal antibody, specific for LH are added to each well to ?sandwich? the LH immobilized on the plate. The microtiter plate undergoes an incubation, then the wells are thoroughly washed to remove all unbound components. Next, a TMB (3,3′,5,5′ tetramethyl-benzidine) substrate solution is added to each well. The enzyme (HRP) and substrate are allowed to react over a short incubation period. Only those wells that contain LH and enzyme-conjugated antibody will exhibit a change in colour. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of a sulphuric acid solution and the colour change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm. In order to measure the concentration of LH in the sample, this Human LH ELISA Kit includes a set of calibration standards (6 standards). The calibration standards are assayed at the same time as the samples and allow the operator to produce a standard curve of Optical Density (O.D.) versus LH concentration (mIU/ml). The concentration of LH in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.
