ELISA Testosterone kit S/P (Serum/Plasma) 96-wells
The CTK Testosterone ELISA is a solid-phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The four main kit components are:
A 96-well breakable solid microwells pre-coated with streptavidin;
Testosterone Enzyme Reagent comprised of testosterone analog-HRP conjugate in a protein stabilizing matrix,
Testosterone Biotin Reagent comprised of anti-testosterone biotinylated purified rabbit IgG conjugate.
This test is intended for the quantitative determination of testosterone level in human serum or plasma. Accurate measurement of testosterone levels is very important for both males and females. Immunoassay measurement in serum or plasma is a first-line approach in assessing testosterone levels, providing important information for diagnostic and monitoring purposes. Any interpretation or use of this test result must also rely on other clinical findings as well as on the professional judgment of health care providers.
Recommended test for patients with any signs and symptoms of suboptimal testosterone levels. In females (high testosterone levels), symptoms may include excess facial hair, balding, acne, enlarged clitoris, decreased breast size, deepening of the voice, increased muscle mass, irregular menstrual cycles, low sex drive, mood fluctuation, obesity, and in severe cases, infertility. In men (low testosterone levels), symptoms may include loss of body hair, sexual dysfunction, hot flashes, gynecomastia, depression, and fatigue.
