For the quantitative determination of Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein in human plasma, serum and urine samples



Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein (AGP) is an acute-phase protein secreted by the liver which under conditions of inflammation increase several-fold in concentration. An elevated serum level of acute-phase inflammatory markers is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Urinary orosomucoid excretion rate predicts cardiovascular mortality in patients with Type II diabetes. AGP can be used as a marker for inflammation, chronic alcohol drinking, chronic kidney disease and asthma.

How It Works

How It Works: 

The Human AGP ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit employs a quantitative competitive enzyme immunoassay technique that measures human plasma and serum, AGP in less than 3 hours. A poly - clonal antibody specific for human AGP has been pre-coated onto a 96-well microplate with removable strips. AGP in standards and samples is competed by a biotinylated AGP sandwiched by the immobilized antibody and streptavidin-peroxidase conjugate. All unbound material is then washed away and a peroxidase enzyme substrate is added. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.
