Measuring incretin GLP-1 with a high sensitivity!



GLP-1 is thegastrointestinal peptide hormone secreted from intestinal L cells, and shows the hypoglycemic action through the enhancement of insulin secretion and the suppression of glucagon secretion by the sugar stimulus. The report has been issued that GLP-1 is useful for the treatment of type 2 diabetes as the new therapeutic agent for diabetes.
This product is ELISA kit measurable with a high sensitivity of GLP-1 in the plasma of mouse and rat used with a highly specific GLP-1 antibody. It has more than 10 times sensitivity compared to the conventional product (Rat GLP-1 ELISA Kit wako).
Since this kit reacts to both the active form of GLP-1 (7-36 amide) and the inactive form of GLP-1 (9-36 amide), it is suitable for experimental system measuring the total amount of GLP-1.


  • High sensitivity
    The range of calibration curve : 0.94~30 pM
    ※In order to avoid the effect by the inhibitor in the blood, we recommend a five-fold dilution of the specimen, the substantial measurement range is 4.7 ~ 150pM.
  • Measurable in a short period of time.
    Measurement time : 4 hours
  • A necessary amount of a specimen is small.
    A necessary amount of a specimen : 10 μL

Comparison with conventional products

  • Sensitivity more than 10 times
  • Measurement time less than 1/4
  • A necessary amount of a specimen 1/3
