EE2 monoclonal antibody binds exclusively with EE2 and does not show cross-reaction with other hormones or chemicals with similar structures.
The quantitative analysis ranges from 0.05μg/L- 3μg/L(ppb), sensitive enough to detect EE2 in a specimen from river water or blood, etc.
With ease of handling, the total time for measurement is only 2.5 hours.
The ELISA measurement is highly reproducible; the coefficient of variation (CV) is generally under 10%.
The kit, a 96-well microplate format, enables simultaneous measurement of multiple samples at more reasonable cost.
Ethynylestradiol (EE2), one of main ingredients for contraceptive pill, is suspected as one of the endocrine disrupting chemicals. While GC-MS or LC-MS/MS are generally employed method for quantitative analysis, they require expensive instrumentation as well as complex and time-consuming extraction process with hazardous organic solvent. This test kit detects EE2 in environment or in vitro at a ppt level(ng/L) with the aid of solid phase extraction.
EE2 Standard Curve
Samples containing Ethynylestradiol(EE2) within the dynamic range (0.05μg/L- 3μg/L) can be directly applied to assay after filtration. Samples with Ethynylestradiol content below the range must be concentrated with solid phase extraction prior to the ensuing session. Coefficient of variation(CV) is generally under 10% throughout the dynamic range.
