Reliable Detection of Dexamethasone, Betamethasone and Flumethasone in Meat and Other Sample Types
The MaxSignal® Dexamethasone ELISA Test Kit is a simple, rapid, sensitive and cost-effective tool for the detection of dexamethasone, betamethasone and flumethasone in meat, fish, shrimp, milk, yogurt, urine or blood.
The MaxSignal Dexamethasone ELISA Test Kit is a competitive colorimetric ELISA assay. The drug of interest has been coated in the plate wells. During analysis, sample is added along with the primary antibody specific for the target drug. If the target is present in the sample, it will compete for the antibody, thereby preventing the antibody from binding to the drug attached to the well. The secondary antibody, tagged with a peroxidase enzyme, targets the primary antibody that is complexed to the drug coated on the plate wells. The resulting color intensity, after addition of substrate, has an inverse relationship with the target concentration in the sample.
Dexamethasone, betamethasone and flumethasone are used for their anti-inflammatory effects in disorders of many organ systems. Glucocorticoids cause profound and varied metabolic effects. In addition, they modify the body’s immune response to a variety of stimuli.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
The MaxSignal Dexamethasone ELISA Test Kit has the capacity for 96 determinations or testing of 42 samples in duplicate (assuming 12 wells for standards). Store the kit at 2-8°C. The shelf life is 12 months when the kit is properly stored.
