|Product name||EliKine™ Free Thyroxine (fT4) ELISA Kit|
|Reactivity||Bovine, Chicken, Dog, Goat, Human, Monkey, Mouse, Rabbit, Rat, Sheep, Swine|
|Applications notes||EliKine™ fT4 ELISA Kit employs the competitive inhibition enzyme immunoassay technique. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to fT4. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with Biotin-conjugated fT4. A competitive inhibition reaction is launched between fT4 (Standards or samples) and Biotin-conjugated fT4 with the pre-coated antibody specific for fT4. The more amount of fT4 in samples, the less antibody bound by Biotin-conjugated fT4. After washing, avidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Substrate solution is added to the wells and the color develops in opposite to the amount of fT4 in the sample. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.|

|Background||Over 99% of Triiodothyronine (T4) circulates in blood is bound to carrier proteins; thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG). However, only the free (unbound) portion of T4 is responsible for the biological action. Further, the concentrations of the carrier proteins are altered in many clinical conditions, such as pregnancy. In normal thyroid function as the concentrations of the carrier proteins alters, the total T4 level changes so that the free T4 concentration remains constant. Thus, measurements of free T4 concentrations correlate more reliably with clinical status than total T4 levels. The increase in total T4 levels associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptives and estrogen therapy result in higher total T4 levels while the free T4 concentration remains basically unchanged.|

1.The species of antibody reactivity should be the sample species that can be matched normally after Abbkine R&D experts have passed strict scientific verification. If your sample is not within the range of reactivity, in order to improve the efficiency and results of your experiment, it is not suggested to try other species. Otherwise, it may lead to sample mismatch and affect the effect of your experiment.
2.Please aliquot the antibody received as soon as possible and store it at -20℃, avoid repeated freezing and thawing, and use it within one year.
