A quantitative assay for the in vitro determination of rat NGAL in urine, plasma, serum, tissue extracts or culture media. 

Assay range

4-400 pg/mL

Assay time
<4 hours
Limit of detection

0.5 pg/mL

Sample dilution
1/20,000 (Urine or EDTA plasma, healthy rats)
Species reactivity (positive)

Rat NGAL (Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin)


NGAL determination allows kidney injury to be detected almost as soon as it occurs, and not at the later stage when the consequences of impaired kidney function can be detected by existing routine tests and the damage has been consolidated.

Regulatory status
RUO - Research Use Only.
