Human u-Plasminogen Activator/Urokinase Quantikine ELISA Summary
The Quantikine Human u-Plasminogen Activator/Urokinase Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure uPA in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human uPA and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human uPA. Results obtained usin...g natural human uPA 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 natural human uPA.
Natural and recombinant human uPA. This assay also recognizes uPA complexed with PAI-1 or uPAR.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
