Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given elisa kit. We\'ve tested the Rat vimentin, VIM ELISA Kit with the following immunoassay(s):
Typical Testing Data/Standard Curve (for reference only)
Principle of the assay: This assay employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. Antibody specific for VIM has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any VIM present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for VIM is added to the wells. After washing, avidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Following a wash to remove any unbound avidin-enzyme reagent, a substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of VIM bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.
Samples: Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates
Assay Type: Sandwich
Detection Range: 23.5 ng/ml-1500 ng/ml.
Sensitivity: The minimum detectable dose of rat VIM is typically less than 5.8 ng/ml. The sensitivity of this assay, or Lower Limit of Detection (LLD) was defined as the lowest protein concentration that could be differentiated from zero. It was determined the mean O.D value of 20 replicates of the zero standard added by their three standard deviations. Intra-assay Precision: Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%. Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision: Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%. Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess. Rat vimentin, VIM 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. VIM also interacts with the following gene(s): Casp8, Cdh2, Des, Dmd. Breast Neoplasms, Disease Models, Animal, Hemorrhage, Inflammation, Kidney Diseases, Liver Diseases, Neoplasm Metastasis, Nervous System Diseases, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Pain are some of the diseases may be linked to Rat vimentin, VIM ELISA Kit. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Blood, Bone, Bone Marrow, Brain, Eye, Kidney, Liver, Muscle, Nerve, Vascular tissues are correlated with this protein.
