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 CLU. Samples (or Standards) and biotinylated detection antibody specific for Human CLU are added to the micro ELISA plate wells. Human CLU would combine with the specific antibody. Then 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 CLU, 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 ± 2 nm. The OD value is proportional to the concentration of Human CLU. You can calculate the concentration of Human CLU in the samples by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.

Technical Data

Sample Values



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

EDTA plasma(n=8) 88-98 95
Urine(n=8) 83-96 91


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


Target Information


Clusterin is a ubiquitous protein that is arousing increasing interest owing to its widespread diffusion and multifunctional role. It is composed of two 40 kD subments (NA1, NA2) encoded by a single gene, which hold together by disulphide bonds. The mature dimer has a molecular mass of 80 kD and is micro-heterogeneous in electrical charge due to glycosylation. This protein has been differently named as apolipoprotein J (ApoJ), sulfated glycoprotein 2 (SGP-2), glycoprotein III (GP- III), testosterone repressed prostate message (TRPM-2), SP-40, 40cytolysis inhibitor (CL1) and others [1].It is a component of the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) complex with putative functions in the transport of lipids, apoptosis, protection of cells from stress and, most important, in the regulation of complement activity. It has been postulated that clusterin is involved in a variety of human diseases including Alzheimer disease, brain injury following ischemia,nephrosis and myocarditis [2].

2. Aspirate and wash the plate for 3 times


3. Add 100μL HRP conjugate working solution. Incubate for 30 min at 37°C. Aspirate and wash the plate for 5 times


4. Add 90μL Substrate Reagent. Incubate for 15 min at 37°C


5. Add 50μL Stop Solution


6. Read the plate at 450nm immediately. Calculation of the results
