Intended Use:
Human Amylin Fluorescent EIA kit is intended to determine levels of human amylin (1-13) amide using serum, any biological fluid samples, plasma, urine or CSF samples.

Assay Principle:
1. Human amylin fluorescent EIA has been pre-coated with secondary antibody and also the non-specific binding sites have been blocked.
2. Secondary antibody is able to bind with the Fc fragment of the primary antibody, the Fab segment is competitively bound by both biotinylated peptides and the peptide standard or the targeted peptide in samples.
3. Biotinylated peptide can then interact with the SA-HRP, which then catalyzes the substrate solution.
4. Fluorescence intensity is directly proportional to the amount of biotinylated peptide-SA-HRP complex but inversely proportional to the amount of the peptide in standard solutions or samples.
5. Unknown concentration in samples can then be determined by using this human amylin fluorescent EIA kit to extrapolation from a standard curve.

Amylin is a 37-residue peptide hormone which is known to be secreted by pancreatic β-cells at the same time as insulin and has a  vital function along side the endocrine pancreas which contributes to glycemic control. It also has a number of functions which include; promoting satiety, slowing gastric emptying, inhibiting the secretion of glucagon during hyperglycemia, thus leading to reduction of the total insulin demand.
