The MaxSignal® THC ELISA Kit uses a competitive immunoassay method to determine the amount of THC present in a serum, stomach liquid, or urine samples. Test plate wells are coated with THC. Blood or urine sample is added for analysis, along with antibody against THC. THC in the sample will compete for the primary antibody, thereby preventing the antibody from binding to the drug attached to the well. After incubation, the sample is removed, the wells are washed and a secondary HRP-conjugated antibody is added. The intensity of the absorbance at 450 nm is directly proportional to the amount of drug in the sample.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the active chemical in Cannabis. THC comes from the flowering tops and leaves of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa, more commonly known as the source of the drug marijuana.
