Human Pentraxin3 / TSG-14 ELISA System

Pentraxin3 (Pentraxin 3 PTX3/TSG-14) is a candidate marker reflecting vascular inflammation as it is directly secreted into blood shortly after the onset of inflammation. The Human Pentraxin 3/TSG-14 ELISA System can be used to measure PTX3 levels in plasma samples obtained using EDTA blood collection tubes or FBS-free culture supernatant samples in a highly sensitive and accurate manner.

Performance characteristics: Dilution linearity and detection limit

The system has a wide measurement range and can measure concentrations in the range of 0.1–20 ng/mL with accuracy and sensitivity.
It does not cause cross reactivity with C-reactive protein (CRP) or SAP, which are also pentraxin family members.

Point of Precaution for Samples Suitable for Measurement and Processing of Measurement Samples

Samples suitable for measurement

  • Plasma collected using EDTA blood collection tubes
  • Fetal bovine serum (FBS)-free culture supernatant

Precaution during sample preparation

  • Serum and plasma samples obtained using heparinized blood collection tubes cannot be used because accurate PTX3 levels cannot be determined.
  • Sample processing ranging from whole blood to plasma separations should be performed within 4 h, and samples should be stored at or below −20°C.

A service to measure PTX3 levels using the ELISA kit “Human Pentraxin3/TSG-14 ELISA System” is offered by two clinical testing companies (SRL Inc. and LSI Medience Corporation) in Japan.

This ELISA kit is also available for research purposes.
