Testosterone ELISA Kit (55R-RE52171)

ELISA kit for detection of Testosterone in the research laboratory

Synonyms Free Testosterone ELISA Kit
Applications ELISA
Assay Information The principle of the following enzyme immunoassay test follows the typical competitive binding scenario. Competition occurs between an unlabeled antigen (present in standards, control and patient samples) and an enzyme-labelled antigen (conjugate) for a limited number of antibody binding sites on the microwell plate. The washing and decanting procedures remove unbound materials. After the washing step, the enzyme substrate is added. The enzymatic reaction is terminated by addition of the stopping solution. The absorbance is measured on a microtiter plate reader. The intensity of the colour formed is inversely proportional to the concentration of free testosterone in the sample. A set of standards is used to plot a standard curve from which the amount of free testosterone in patient samples and controls can be directly read.

General Information

Biological Significance Testosterone is a C-19 steroid secreted from the testis and the adrenal cortex in men and from the adrenal cortex and ovaries in women. Testosterone is also produced by peripheral tissues from androstenedione, which is of little physiological significance in men, however in women about half of the circulating testosterone is derived from this origin. Testosterone measurements are used mainly for clinical evaluation of hypogonadism in males and hyperandrogenic states in females.
