AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit (Colorimetric)

The AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit (Colorimetric) provides a precise and reliable method for quantifying elastin content in various biological samples. This assay kit is designed to meet the needs of researchers in fields such as cardiovascular biology, connective tissue research, and pulmonary studies.

Key Features:

  • High Sensitivity: Our assay kit can detect low levels of elastin, allowing for accurate quantification in biological samples.
  • Colorimetric Detection: Utilizing a colorimetric assay, our kit offers a simple and easy-to-read readout, suitable for both manual and automated analysis.
  • Wide Application: The AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit is compatible with various sample types, including tissues, cell lysates, and extracellular matrix extracts.
  • Quick and Easy: With a streamlined protocol, you can obtain results rapidly, saving time and resources in the laboratory.
  • Cost-Effective: Our kit provides an affordable solution for measuring elastin levels, reducing experimental costs without compromising data quality.

Assay Principle:

The colorimetric assay measures the elastin content based on the reaction of elastin with a dye reagent to form a colored complex. The intensity of the color formed is directly proportional to the amount of elastin present in the sample.


  • Cardiovascular Research: Study the role of elastin in cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and hypertension.
  • Connective Tissue Studies: Investigate the structural integrity and elasticity of connective tissues in health and disease.
  • Pulmonary Research: Assess elastin content in lung tissues to understand the pathogenesis of pulmonary diseases, including emphysema and fibrosis.

Kit Contents:

  • Elastin Assay Buffer
  • Elastin Assay Reagent
  • Microplate (96 wells)
  • Elastin Standard
  • Detailed Protocol

AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit (Colorimetric) Protocol:

[Please note that this protocol is a general guideline, and you should always refer to the specific instructions provided in the kit manual for accurate and detailed information.]

Materials Needed:

  • AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit (Colorimetric)
  • Biological samples containing elastin
  • Microplate reader capable of measuring absorbance
  • Pipettes and tips
  • Microcentrifuge tubes


Standard Curve Preparation:

  • Prepare a series of standard solutions containing known concentrations of elastin standard provided in the kit.
  • Dilute the Elastin Assay Reagent with Elastin Assay Buffer to prepare the working solution.
  • Add the working solution to each standard solution to initiate the reaction.

Assay Plate Setup:

  • Label the microplate wells according to your experimental design, including wells for your samples, standards, and controls.
  • If using controls, prepare control samples without elastin to serve as background controls.

Sample and Standard Addition:

  • Add 50-100 µL of your prepared samples and standard solutions to the appropriate wells on the microplate.
  • Ensure that the final reaction volume in each well is consistent.

Assay Reaction:

  • Add an equal volume of Elastin Assay Reagent to each well to initiate the reaction.
  • Incubate the microplate at the appropriate temperature (as specified in the kit instructions) for a recommended time to allow the color to develop.

Colorimetric Measurement:

  • After the incubation period, measure the absorbance of each well at the appropriate wavelength using a microplate reader.

Data Analysis:

  • Generate a standard curve using the absorbance values obtained from the standard solutions.
  • Calculate the elastin concentrations in your samples based on their respective absorbance readings and the standard curve.

Results Interpretation:

  • Interpret and analyze your results according to your research objectives.
  • Observe any variations or trends in elastin levels among your samples.

Data Presentation:

  • Prepare your data for presentation or publication, and include the appropriate statistical analysis if required.


  • Dispose of all waste materials, including used assay components, according to your laboratory's safety protocols.
  • Always refer to the specific instructions provided with the AffiASSAY® Elastin Assay Kit (Colorimetric) for any kit-specific details or variations in the protocol.
  • Additionally, ensure that you adhere to the best practices and safety guidelines in your laboratory while conducting the assay.
