Arbor Assays is pleased to announce the immediate release of the newest assay kit for reproductive biology research. The DetectX® Progesterone Metabolite Immunoassay Kit, K068-H1/H5, was developed to quantitatively measure Progesterone metabolites present in extracted fecal samples and urine. This assay provides another valuable tool for profiling progesterone metabolites. The cross-reactivity profile of the newest assay (K068-H1/H5) includes important biomarkers absent from previous kits.
- Use: Measure general progesterone metabolites and generate reproductive profiles
- Sample: Fecal Extracts, Urine
- Sensitivity: 51.2 pg/mL
- Samples/Kit: 40 or 232 in Duplicate
Progesterone Metabolites Standard Curve
Progesterone (P4, pregn-4-ene-3,20-dione) belongs to a class of hormones called progestogens, and is an essential regulator of female reproductive function in the uterus, ovary, mammary gland and brain. Progestogens are the primary hormones involved in the female menstrual cycle, gestation, and embryogenesis of humans and most other species. Progesterone can be metabolized and excreted as a variety of general progesterone by-products. Common metabolites include 5-reduced progesterone (pregnane), pregnanolones and hydroprogesterones. Measurement of progesterone metabolites provides vital data about reproductive status and is essential for studying reproductive and survival strategies of wildlife and endangered species. Likewise, assays measuring progesterone metabolites provide a clearer picture of hormonal regulation and reproduction.
