Quantitative vitellogenin (Vtg) ELISA kits for detection of endocrine disruptors with estrogenic or anti-estrogenic properties.
Vtg is one of the core endpoint in screening and testing for endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) described in the OECD Guidelines for the testing of chemicals, for example:
OECD Test guideline 229 (Fish Short-Term Reproduction Assay)
OECD Test guideline 230 (21-day Fish Assay)
OECD Test guideline 234 (Fish Sexual Development Test)
OECD Test guideline 240 (MEOGRT)
The Biosense vitellogenin ELISA kits have been developed for the standard fish test species recommended by OECD, and are used in many ecotoxicology laboratories throughout the world. The kits come in two sizes, with 96 and 480 wells (1 and 5 plates), and contains all necessary reagents for running the ELISA as well as an instructive protocol.
