What is an HGH Elisa

Sep 16, 2008
An HGH ELISA kit is a kit that is designed to find a quantitative measurement of HGH in the human serum (plasma). Human growth hormone (HGH) is a polypeptide chain that contains nearly 200 amino acids and other components. The natural GH in the body is produced in the pituitary gland in both men and women, and this is also where it is released into the body. Usually the secretion throughout the body happens about three to four hours after a meal and about an hour after a person lies down to sleep. It can also be released after physical exercise.

Human growth hormone ELISA is designed to measure the amount of this type of hormone that is in the plasma of the blood. Why is this ELISA type important? It is important for those who have conditions that need to be monitored. There are many conditions that can imbalance the amount of HGH that gets secreted into the body. For example, if there is a hyposecretion of it into the body within the first few months of a baby's life, this can lead to a specific type of dwarfism. In the opposite case where there is too much HGH being secreted into the body, it can result in the condition of gigantism or hypophysic tumors.

When conditions need to be monitored, the ELISA method is often the best way to do this. Doctors and researchers have been using this method for awhile now, and it has proven to be very useful when you want keep track of the amount of HGH in the blood. This monitoring will be able to provide doctors information on the patient so that medication can be prescribed in order to balance out the amount of growth hormone in the body.

The ELISA kits comes with 6 standard vials, Microwell coated with HGH MAB, HGH enzyme conjugate, TMB substrate, stop solution, and a 20x wash concentrate. Other materials needed for the test that are not provided in the kit are distilled water, pipettes, pipette tips, micro titer well reader that is capable of reading at 450nm absorbency, paper towel, and graph paper. The Human growth hormone ELISA kit needs to be stored at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius and note the expiration date. This is how long the reagents will remain stable.

The kit is easy to prepare and conduct the test with, but there are a few warnings and precautions. There are potentially biohazardous materials because you are working with human blood. The controls have been tested and found non-reactive to hepatitis B and HIV.

For those who have Human GH deficiencies or abundances, these tests are vital to their overall health and treatment of their conditions. Doctors will use these multiple times in order to see if there are any changes in the condition, and also use them as checkups to see if treatments are working properly
