Assay Information The free cortisol in saliva ELISA kit is a solid phase ELISA based on the principle of competitive binding. The microtiter wells are coated with a mouse monoclonal antibody directed towards an antigenic site on the Cortisol molecule. Endogenous Cortisol of a patient sample competes with a Cortisol-horseradish peroxidase conjugate for binding to the coated antibody. After incubation the unbound conjugate is washed off. The amount of bound peroxidase conjugate is inversely proportional to the concentration of Cortisol in the sample. After addition of the substrate solution, the intensity of colour developed is reverse proportional to the concentration of Cortisol in the patient sample.
