  • Scientific Description
    Mercodia Glicentin ELISA is a high-quality immunoassay for the quantification of human glicentin in serum, plasma and cell culture media. Glicentin is a proglucagon derived gut peptide that is released in the gut in response to feed intake. It is present in high levels in the circulation after stimulation and is often a problem when measuring glucagon and other proglucagon derivates because of it’s shared sequence. The Mercodia Glicentin ELISA however, has no cross-reactivity to such circulating proglucagon derived gut peptides. • Highly specific, sensitive and rapid method for determination of glicentin • No cross-reactivity to circulating proglucagon derived gut peptides • Assay buffers and calibrators have been optimized to prevent degradation and aggregation of glicentin
