'High Sensitive 8-OHdG Check’  ELISA Kit
(ELISA kit for 8-hydroxy-2’-deoxyguanosine)
Catalog #KOG-HS10E

Product Insert (pdf)

High Sensitive 8-OHdG Check is a competitive in vitro enzyme-linked immuno-sorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of the oxidative DNA adduct, 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) in test samples such as DNA of tissues, lymphocytes, cell culture medium etc., that are expected to have low levels of 8-OHdG.

Sample Pre-Treatment Protocol (pdf)
Please note in most cases sample pre-treatment is required to measure the free form of 8-OHdG.

Features of the High Sensitive 8-OHdG Check ELISA Kit


Easy operation:

There is no need for expensive equipments and sample pretreatment.


Highly specific:

Monoclonal antibody recognizes 8-OHdG specifically
(21 analogues of 8-OHdG do not have any cross reactivity).



Estimated time of assay is overnight incubation followed
by 2 hours.


With blank and standard 24 samples can be tested in triplicate. Only 150µl
of sample is required (50µl per well).


The use of split type microplate prevents the waste of reagents.

Merits of the High Sensitive 8-OhdG Check Elisa Kit

The High Sensitive 8-OHdG Check is useful as a non-invasive indicator in numerous ways, such as:

  • Use as a screening protocol to learn the role of oxidative stress biomarker 8-OHdG in aging and for application of this biomarker in the advancement of basic and applied research in biology and medicine.
  • In nutrition, diet, and life style related basic and applied research.
  • In evaluating the extent of oxidative stress generated as a result of exercises performed by the body or specific actions to which the body is subjected to.
  • In determining the side effects of oxidative stress following clinical procedures
    or intake of  therapeutic drugs.
