AFP ELISA Kit Background Information:
Elevation of serum AFP to abnormally high values, occurs in several malignant diseases, most notably non-seminomatous testicular cancer and primary hepatocellular carcinoma. In the case of non-seminomatous testicular cancer, a direct relationship has been observed between the incidence of elevated AFP levels and the stage of disease. Elevated AFP levels have also been observed in patients diagnosed with seminoma with non-seminomatous elements, but not in patients with pure seminoma. In addition, elevated serum AFP concentrations have been measured in patients with other noncancerous diseases, including ataxia telangiectasia, hereditary tyrosinemia, neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, acute viral hepatitis, chronic active hepatitis, and cirrhosis. Elevated serum AFP concentrations are also observed in pregnant women. Therefore, the AFP ELISA test kit measurements are not recommended for use as a screening procedure to detect the presence of cancer in the general population.

AFP ELISA Test Principle:
The AFP ELISA kit is based on a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The AFP ELISA kit utilizes one anti-AFP antibody for microtiter wells immobilization and another with mouse monoclonal anti-AFP antibody in the antibody-enzyme horseradish peroxidase conjugate solution. In the AFP ELISA kit, the serum is added to the AFP antibody coated microtiter wells and incubated with the Zero Buffer. If human AFP is present in the specimen, it will combine with the antibody on the well. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
