Mercodia Glucagon ELISA – 10 μL

A revolutionizing ELISA for sensitive and specific determination of glucagon in serum, EDTA plasma, and cell culture media samples from rat, mouse, and non-human primates (NHP). A research tool advancement that allows science to take the next step.


The highly specific monoclonal antibodies used in Glucagon ELISA – 10 µL enable accurate determination of glucagon with low to no levels of significant cross-reactivity to other circulating pro-glucagon-derived peptides. Under certain conditions like post-bariatric surgery, the concentrations of glicentin have been demonstrated to be elevated to levels that might interfere.


Mercodia Glucagon Control – Low, Medium, High (10-1286-01) is a three-level control for Mercodia Glucagon ELISA -10 µL.


An alternative protocol (TN34-0162) for Glucagon ELISA – 10 µL can be used in situations where exceptionally high levels of glicentin are expected.
