Canine NGAL (Lipocalin-2) ELISA Kit In this assay the NGAL present in samples reacts with the anti-NGAL antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtitre wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti-NGAL antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound NGAL. Following another washing step, the enzyme bound to the immunosorbent is assayed by the addition of achromogenic substrate, 3,3,5,5-tetramethylbenzidine(TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of NGAL in the sample tested;thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of NGAL in the test sample. The quantity of NGAL in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution.
