Target Details This gene encodes one of the major intermediate filament proteins of mature astrocytes. It is used as a marker to distinguish astrocytes from other glial cells during development. Mutations in this gene cause Alexander disease, a rare disorder of astrocytes in the central nervous system. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.

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.

Q&A and Customer Reviews


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.
Your research purpose is feasible. We have this kit available: Human glial fibrillary acidic protein,GFAP ELISA Kit CSB-E08601h. For a 96T kit, the standard is S0-S7. It can test 88 samples. If you run duplicated wells, it can test 44 samples.
