Typical Standard Curve/Testing Data
The test principle applied in this kit is Sandwich enzyme immunoassay. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21). Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody specific to Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21). Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21), biotin-conjugated antibody and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ± 10nm. The concentration of Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.
Assay Type: Double-antibody Sandwich
Samples: Serum, Plasma, Tissue homogenates, Cell lysates, Cell culture supernates and Other Biological Fluids

Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) were tested on 3 different plates, 8 replicates in each plate.
CV(%) =: SD/meanX100
Inter-Assay: CV<12%. Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) ELISA Kit or ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbant assays) Kits in general, are a valuable research tool for a myriad of applications in a range of scientific settings. Currently, three major types of ELISA formats are used by researchers: sandwich, competitive and indirect. Most commercially available ELISA Kits are sandwich or competitive. Commercially available ELISA Kits contain wells that have been pre-coated with the capture antibody. Please refer to the product manual for the ELISA format of your specific kit. Cardiovascular Diseases, Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2, Disease Models, Animal, Fatty Liver, Hyperinsulinism, Inflammation, Insulin Resistance, Liver Diseases, Obesity, Weight Loss are some of the diseases may be linked to Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) ELISA Kit. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Lung tissues are correlated with this protein. FGF21 also interacts with the following gene(s): AKT1, CYP7A1, FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3, FGFR4, INS, KLB, PPARG.
