Test Principle

This ELISA kit uses the Sandwich-ELISA principle. The micro ELISA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Human GH. Standards or samples are added to the micro ELISA plate wells and combined with the specific antibody. Then a biotinylated detection antibody specific for Human GH and Avidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugate are added successively to each micro plate well and incubated. Free components are washed away. The substrate solution is added to each well. Only those wells that contain Human GH, biotinylated detection antibody and Avidin-HRP conjugate will appear blue in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of stop solution and the color turns yellow. The optical density (OD) is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm ± 2 nm. The OD value is proportional to the concentration of Human GH. You can calculate the concentration of Human GH in the samples 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 Human GH were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, mid range and high level Human GH were tested on 3 different plates, 20 replicates in each plate.

The recovery of Human GH 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) 92-105 99
EDTA plasma (n=8) 94-106 100
Cell culture media (n=8) 88-99 94


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

Asked: With respect to the above question, the analyte of interest will be specific to Human. Human growth hormone will be administered to a rodent or non rodent animal and plasma from the respective species will be used as the blood from the animals will have the human growth hormone. The only difference is the matrix of the species. Will the matrix of other species affect the assay ?



adminSubmitted [ Aug 05 2022 ]

Answered: We have not done experiments to verify this, but since different species may have small differences in the internal environment. We speculate that substrate interference is very likely.


M************mSubmitted [ Aug 04 2022 ]

Asked: Can this Kit be used for biological fluids from other than Human? Like, determination of Human growth hormone in Rat/ rabbit or swine plasma ?



adminSubmitted [ Aug 04 2022 ]



adminSubmitted [ Aug 04 2022 ]

Answered: For this kit, we designed it specifically for human, and it is not recommended to be used for testing samples of other species. If the you want to test the rat sample, we have E-EL-R3003.
