Collagen Type II Cleavage Sandwich Assay (IB-C2C-HUSA™)
Cat. # 60-1007

Intended use:

The C2C-HUSA ELISA kit measures cartilage degradation. This assay with specific monoclonal antibodies is primarily designed to detect a type II collagen 45-mer collagenase-generated cleavage fragment commonly found in human urine. In a sandwich assay design the capture mAb is specific for intra-chain sequence and Tracer-HRP mAb is specific for C2C C-terminal neoepitope.
