Human immunosuppressive acidic protein (IAP) ELISA
IAP is an acute-phase reactant, which correllates with an impairment in the immune system. The level of IAP is a diagnostic and follow-up marker for ovarian and renal cancer.
The IAP ELISA is a standard quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay recognizing recombinant and natural human IAP and can be used to measure IAP in either fresh or frozen cell culture supernates, serum, or plasma (heparin or EDTA) without prior sample purification. The standard curve spans the range of 1.6-100 ng/mL with a minimum detection limit of 0.4 ng/mL. If samples generate values higher than the highest standard, they are diluted and repeated. The IAP ELISA is for research use only, not for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
