Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human GFAP in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

I am interested in conducting a research on “ serum GFAP level and it’s correlation with histopathological grading of solitary supra Tentorial space occupying lesion.I would be grateful if you you could let me know wheather you would be able to supply the kit .if you do then how many kit do I need to cover sample of 50-60 cases?

Thanks for your inquiry.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
GFAP, a class-III intermediate filament, is a cell-specific marker that, during the development of the central nervous system, distinguishes astrocytes from other glial cells.
