What is an ELISA Kit?
ELISA kits are ready-to-use immunoassay kits that contain all reagents required to perform the ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). ELISA is a plate-based experiment designed to detect and quantify molecules, such as proteins, antibodies, hormones, peptides and sometimes small molecules like vitamins and coenzymes. Antibodies linked with enzymes are used to quantify the results. Various formats (see below) exist and the antibody antigen interaction principle is different for each format.

Here are some quick facts about our ELISA kits
Boster's Picokine™ ELISA kits are made with high affinity antibodies that can detect native form proteins with picogram and subpicogram level sensitivity.
Boster's QC department validates our ELISA kits against proteins in relevant superfamilies and proteins with similar immunogenicities to ensure specificity to the analytes of interests.
Our 2300+ ELISA kits are validated in multiple sample matrices from serum and saliva to urine and feces, ensuring wide application ranges for you to select from.
Boster has been serving the research community since 1993 and cited by 23,000+ publications. Our team of experts are dedicated to provide you the best customer service.
How does the ELISA kit work?
The key step, immobilization of the antigen of interest, can be accomplished by direct adsorption to the assay plate or indirectly via a capture antibody that has been attached to the plate. The antigen is then detected either directly (enzyme-labeled primary antibody) or indirectly (enzyme-labeled secondary antibody). The detection antibodies are usually labeled with alkaline phosphatase (AP) or horseradish peroxidase (HRP). A large selection of substrates is available for performing the ELISA with an HRP or AP conjugate. The choice of substrate depends upon the required assay sensitivity and the instrumentation available for signal-detection (spectrophotometer, fluorometer, or luminometer). Detection is achieved by measuring the enzyme activity. One method is through incubation with TMB substrate which can be detected via the converted substrate’s light absorbance at 450nm. Alternatively, the enzyme can catalyze chemiluminescent substrate, triggering a strong luminescent reaction which can be quantified.
Typical ELISA Protocol Workflow
Boster's ELISA kits contain all the reagents one needs to conduct a sandwich ELISA, with pre-coated ELISA plates. Case management shouldn’t take hours, so we designed it to be easy. With the following simple steps, all your documents will fall in the right place, so your team can focus on the things that matter:
Polystyrene plate is treated with a solution of either antigen or antibody.
An unrelated protein-based solution is used to cover all unbound sites on the plates.
Enzyme-conjugated antibody or antigen binds specifically to the target antigen or antibody.
Substrate is added and the signal produced by the enzyme-substrate reaction is measured.

What life scientists are saying about Boster ELISA kits
"We are a pharmaceutical startup optimizing cell based drug assays where one of our endpoints was observing the differences in mature IL-1b production in the media. I have compared several kits from the most expensive versions of R&D, over eBioscience/Affymetrix to a more budget Boster's kit. The aim was to decide..

I was using this kit to detect IL-2 secretion from Jurkat T-cells upon activation with PMA and PHA. I followed the protocol exactly. I had extremely low levels of IL-2 in my experiment, which were just above background. In this case, it was essential for me to use the standards and blanks...
DUKE UNIVERSITY, MEDICINE, RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
This ELISA kit worked as advertised. Wells can be removed as strips, so not everything has to be used. Great product. Results are good and have low %CV. Quick assay kit and cheaper than other companies in my opinon.

I used this kit to detect a recombinant IL1RA in rat serum and it worked very well. The procedure was easy to follow and my standard curve was right on target. If needed we will order this kit and use it again. The kit was able to detect our rIL1RA but was less sensitive in detecting...
We used this kit and the BDNF kit, because we were looking at neurogenesis within the hippocampus. We used the ELISA to complement our immunohistochemistry. It was easy to optimize the kits and the instructions were extremely easy to follow. Additionally, the instructions do not include using samples...

• Add tissue homogenates into the wells and then add ABC and TMB without adding any biotinylated detection antibody to see if any signal will be observed.
If no signal is produced, then you can work on the tissue sample by using the kit.
