useful for measurement the amount of HIV-1 Gag p24 antigen

HIV-1 p24 ELISA Kit

Background

This kit can measure the amount of HIV-1 Gag p24 antigen in cell culture medium handily by a sandwich ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) method.
p24 antigen is a structure protein of HIV-1, so when this is measured, it's possible to presume the virus amount in the sample

Principle

This kit is made based on the principle of a sandwich ELISA method using an antibody coated plate as a solid phase, a biotinyl antibody and a peroxidase-labeled streptavidin

Feature

・ p24 of subtype AE can be measured at the same sensitivity as subtype B, because affinity purified polyclonal antibody raised against the full length recombinant p24 is used.
・ Risk-free kit, because neither patient sera nor active virus products are used.
・ Assay can be performed at room temperature
