Neogen’s Cytokine ELISA test kits are designed for the in vitro quantification of a range of cytokines in various biological fluids for a range of species including Human, Mouse and Rats. Cytokines are a large category of small proteins that play an important role in cell signalling - they are released by cells and affect the behaviour of other cells, and sometimes the releasing cell itself.
Neogen’s test kits are qualitative one-step kits designed as screening devices in forensic samples. The kits are intended for forensic use only. It is recommended that all suspect samples be confirmed by a quantitative method such as GC/MS. Our easy-to-use protocols are designed for high and low volume laboratories as they can be run manually or easily automated on a wide range of immunoassay instruments.
Neogen’s Eicosanoid ELISA kits offer quantitative analysis of Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Thromboxanes in biological fluid. These signalling molecules are made by the oxidation of 20-carbon fatty acids. They exert complex control over inflammation, immunity, and can act as messengers in the central nervous system.
Neogen’s Histamine ELISA test kit is designed for the in vitro quantification of histamine in various biological fluids. Histamine is a heterocyclic primary amine derived from the amino acid histidine. It is a mediator of inflammation and plays an intricate role in the immune systems response to foreign pathogens.
Neogen’s Hormone and Steroid panel includes ELISA test kits for the quantitative analysis of Androstenedione, Corticosterone, Cortisol, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, and Testosterone in biological fluid. This group of chemicals is commonly referred to as steroid hormones. They are secreted by four “steroid glands” - the adrenal cortex, testes, ovaries, and by the placenta during pregnancy. All steroid hormones are derived from cholesterol. They are transported through the bloodstream to the cells of various target organs where they carry out the regulation of a wide range of physiological functions.
Neogen’s Lipoxin panel includes ELISA test kits for the quantitative analysis of 15-epi-Lipoxin A4 and Lipoxin A4 in biological fluid. Lipoxins are members of the family of bioactive products generated from Arachidonic Acid (AA). Lipoxins are short lived eicosanoids whose appearance signals the resolution of inflammation.
Neogen’s Oxidative Stress panel includes ELISA test kits for the quantitative analysis of Isoprostane, Total Antioxidant and Urinary Isoprostane in biological fluid. Antioxidants and Isoprostanes are related to oxidative stress which can cause disruptions in normal mechanisms of cellular signalling. Oxidative stress is thought to be involved in the development of cancer, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, heart failure and can be a factor in many other diseases.
Neogen’s Specialty Test kits are designed for the quantitative analysis of Creatinine, Cyclic AMP and Nitric Oxide in biological fluid.
