Current Position:Home>>Kits>>CLIA Kits>> Rat TIMP-1 (Tissue Inhibitors of Metalloproteinase 1) CLIA Kit
This CLIA kit applies to the in vitro quantitative determination of Rat TIMP-1 concentrations in serum, plasma and other biological fluids.
This CLIA kit uses the Sandwich-CLIA principle. The micro CLIA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Rat TIMP-1. Standards or samples are added to the micro CLIA plate wells and combined with the specific antibody. Then a biotinylated detection antibody specific for Rat TIMP-1 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 Rat TIMP-1, biotinylated detection antibody and Avidin-HRP conjugate will appear fluorescence. The Relative light unit (RLU) value is measured by the Chemiluminescence immunoassay analyzer. The RLU value is positively associated with the concentration of Rat TIMP-1. You can calculate the concentration of Rat TIMP-1 in the samples by comparing the RLU value of the samples to the standard curve.
|Detection range||12.50-800 pg/mL|
|Sample type||Serum, plasma and other biological fluids|
|Repeatability||CV < 15%|
This kit recognizes Rat TIMP-1 in samples. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between Rat TIMP-1 and analogues was observed.
As the RLU values of the standard curve may vary according to the conditions of the actual assay performance (e.g. operator, pipetting technique, washing technique or temperature effects), the operator should establish a standard curve for each test. Typical standard curve and data is provided below for reference only.
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, mid range and high level Rat TIMP-1 were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, mid range and high level Rat TIMP-1 were tested on 3 different plates, 20 replicates in each plate.

|C V (%)||11.41||10.32||10.52||8.73||9.37||6.35|
The recovery of Rat TIMP-1 spiked at three different levels in samples throughout the range of the assay was evaluated in various matrices.
|Sample Type||Range (%)||Average Recovery (%)|
|EDTA plasma (n=5)||86-101||93|
|Cell culture media (n=5)||92-103||98|
Samples were spiked with high concentrations of Rat TIMP-1 and diluted with Reference Standard & Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the range of the assay.
|Serum (n=5)||EDTA plasma (n=5)||Cell culture media (n=5)|
