Application This ELISA kit applies to the in vitro quantitative determination of cAMP concentrations in serum, plasma and other biological fluids.

Test Principle

This ELISA kit uses the Competitive-ELISA principle. The micro ELISA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with cAMP. During the reaction, cAMP in the sample or standard competes with a fixed amount of cAMP on the solid phase supporter for sites on the Biotinylated Detection Ab specific to cAMP. Excess conjugate and unbound sample or standard are washed away, and Avidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugate are added to each micro plate well and incubated. Then a TMB substrate solution is added to each well. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of stop solution and the color turns from blue to yellow. The optical density (OD) is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm ± 2 nm. The concentration of cAMP in tested samples can be calculated by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.

Technical Data


Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, mid range and high level cAMP were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, mid range and high level cAMP were tested on 3 different plates, 20 replicates in each plate.

The recovery of cAMP spiked at three different levels in samples throughout the range of the assay was evaluated in various matrices.

Sample Type Range (%) Average Recovery (%)
Serum(n=8) 89-104 95
EDTA plasma(n=8) 86-100 92
Cell culture media(n=8) 87-100 92


Samples were spiked with high concentrations of cAMP and diluted with Reference Standard & Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the range of the assay.
