Sandwich ELISA, AChE-labelled antibody



Sample Requirements

20 µl/well


On ice. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.


Store the kit at -20°C. Under these conditions, the kit is stable until expiration date (see label on the box).

Calibration Range

3.9 – 500 pg/ml

Limit of Detection

The Limit of Determination, calculated as the concentration of Unacylated Ghrelin corresponding to the NSB average (n = 8) plus three standard deviations is 5 pg/mL. Due to the minimal plasma dilution (1:5), the limit of detection in the samples is 25 pg/mL.

Ghrelin, an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor, is synthesized principally in the stomach. It stimulates food intake and transduces signals to hypothalamic regulatory nuclei that controls energy homeostasis. The peptide consists of 28 amino acids, with a n-octanoylation of the serine-3 residue, which is necessary for the biological activity mentioned below. Ghrelin is present in the peripheral circulation under two forms: acylated and unacylated.
