The Creatinine Companion

Ensure quantitative analyte measurement from urine with the Creatinine Companion Kit, which provides robust normalization for any urine component.

FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY

The Creatinine Companion Kit can be used to normalize the measurement of any analyte in urine, enabling expression of results as μg analyte per mg creatinine. While this Kit is compatible with any ELISA, it is specifically designed to simplify analysis of any Exocell immunospecific ELISA for urine analytes. The kit uses a quick and quantitative chemical colorimetric test, an adaptation of the alkaline picrate method, that provides a creatinine measurement based on a comparison of sample absorbance at 500 nm versus a standard curve.

The Creatinine Companion kit contains all of the components and reagents you need to assay creatinine of any species in up to 88 duplicate urine samples. This is a chemical assay, does not contain antibodies, and is recommended only for urine.
